The UUA and the UUSC has joined together as partners to form the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice which offers opportunities for experiential learning, “programs that help people cross boundaries, gain insight, and imagine new ways to bring their faith together with their yearning to make a difference in the world.” The UUCSJ’s website, www.uucsj.org, lists opportunities for youth and young adults, ministers and seminarians, and congregations.
The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center just outside Highlands, NC has been a “go-to” destination for UUs across the Southeastern US for decades. High Streeters have been involved at the Mountain as members of the governing board, volunteer staff, program staff, and (of course) retreatants. The Mountain offers year-round programming for children, youth, and adults, for ministry professionals, for congregational leaders, and for individuals and community organizations.
inSpirit: The UU Book and Gift Shop (formerly known as the UU Bookstore) offers a wide variety of books, gifts, and UU-branded merchandise. Of particular interest are books published by Beacon Press (the general-purpose publishing arm of the UUA), printing books that “… seek to change the way readers think about fundamental issues, promoting such values as freedom of speech and thought, the importance of economic and social justice issues, religious pluralism, respect for our environment, and the importance of the arts in a civil society.” inSpirit also carries the full line of titles from Skinner House Books (the “in-house” publishing arm of the UUA), printing works that are “… directly aimed at the spiritual needs of Unitarian Universalists, seekers, and others who share the values of liberal religion.”
UU World is the magazine of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The magazine is published six times per year and is mailed to all members of UU congregations. In the center of each issue, one will find Family Pages, filled with stories and actives for UUs with small children.
InterConnections is an online archive of articles of interest to congregational leaders, including such topics as planning and leading worship, membership growth, facilities management, finance, communications, governance, and leadership development.
Harvard Square Library is affiliated with First Parish in Cambridge (MA), Unitarian Universalist, and contains a wealth of information about UU history.
