#57 | Nan Lundeen | Jettison the Changes

Submission 57
Nan Lundeen
Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

What is your suggestion or idea?

I strongly urge that the entire proposal be jettisoned.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

There is no need to change Article II. It reads well and works fine. The 7 principles are clear and succinct. They are great guidelines to living a U.U.-principled life without impinging upon anyone’s freedom.

The proposed changes are hierarchical, dogmatic, and impinge upon individual and congregational freedoms.

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

Yes. I have discussed with 19 members of my congregation and with a friend who is a U.U. in another state. Every person has the same concerns that I listed above and all were adamant!
