October 27 – 30, 2016 Minneapolis / St. Paul At the Airport Hilton, Bloomington, Minnesota Together we will explore a variety of questions related to the theme: Beyond Boundaries: • Which boundaries have defined or still define Unitarian Universalism? • What can the 19th-century Western Controversy teach us about today’s controversies? • What controversies reside in and surround Unitarian Universalism today? • How do legacies of conflict and violence over “the frontier” shape Unitarian Universalism today? • Where are today’s “frontiers”? • How have Unitarian and Universalists grown in the past? • What might enable growth in Unitarian Universalism today?
