From my entry on the UU World’s blog:
In the 21st century, what’s a congregation? A gathering of people in a brick and mortar building? What about communities that gather using online communication tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype? And what about the virtual world of Second Life? This afternoon I attended a UUA Board-hosted conversation on redefining congregations in our Association’s by-laws. In this segment I meet up with Abbey Tennis to discuss the conversation. Will Saturday’s PLENARY V be a historic vote to no longer specify that UUA member congregations be “local” congregations?
(Don Skinner reported on the same event earlier today in his post Workshop: Do congregations need walls?)
