Be sure to RSVP for the following Starr King events:
Prospective Students: Meet the President – Thursday & Saturday (June 23 & 25)

Workshop: Faith-Rooted Organizing for Social Change – Thursday (June 23)
This interactive workshop, featuring Betty Jeanne Rueters-Ward, Amanda Weatherspoon and The Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt, offers tools and best practices for faith-rooted organizing at the intersections of issues, identities, and religious traditions. Drawing lessons from younger-generation UU leaders in movements from Black Lives Matter to climate justice, participants will explore their own faith-rooted organizing style and opportunities to take action.
President’s Lecture: The Transient and the Permanent in Theological Education – Friday (June 24)
Don’t miss the 2016 Starr King President’s Lecture by The Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt. Theological education has experienced the same disruptions as society as a whole. These disruptions, however, might be just the opportunity progressive religious leaders have been waiting for. How might we capitalize on cultural changes to support the formation of 21st century religious leaders – and what qualities are essential for us to maintain if we are to be faithful?
Break Bread With Us: Starr King Iftar Dinner – Friday (June 24)
Ramadan Mubarak! Are you or someone you know celebrating Ramadan at GA, but don’t have a place or community to break the fast with? We would like to extend a special invitation to Muslim members of our community for this joyous occasion.
Thank you for your interest in Starr King at GA. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
