What is your suggestion or idea?

General observation : The proposed changes, while they encompass our existing Principles, deviate from the necessary clarity and conciseness necessary to convey both our Mission and simple definition of our

i suggest a concise Mission Statement be developed and retention of the current Principles and Historical sources , This would suffice.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

The Proposal lacks clarity and conciseness, It is unnecessarily verbose !

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

Yes ! General discussion at our most recent Service, with general agreement.

Good idea: a memorable mission statement that will join UUs together. If the language was inspiring that would make an enormous difference. Surely it’s possible to come up with a mission that’s will be a rallying call, then we wouldn’t need accountabilty language.
