The Commission on Appraisal has released its draft of the revision of the UU Principles and Purposes (Article II of the UUA’s Bylaws). I’m going to join in and do my part fulfilling the Commission’s request that the draft be publicized widely and discussed and feedback be given to the Commission in a timely manner.
I have to say that thus far I am not thrilled with the revision. It’s not because I don’t like what the revision says, but because I think it’s an unnecessary explication of each principle. It’s as if the Commision’s task was to do midrash on the seven principles.
Please take part in the process by reading the draft and sending your feedback to the Commission via the online survey they’ve set up. Here’s the link. (Look for the big blue button once you get to the Commission’s page).
