UUA Board Voted Unanimously to Place COA Proposed Changes to Article II on GA 2009 Agenda
During their January meeting, the UUA Board of Trustees voted *unanimously* to place the Commission on Appraisal's proposed changes to Article II on the GA 2009 agenda.
For the delegate vote in Salt Lake City, the Board approved all but one change as it was proposed by the Commission on Appraisal in December. The amended paragraph (as written and passed by the Board) is below.
To the thousands of UUs who participated in the Article II Review process -- from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

In the final paragraph of C.2.2, the original sentence read:
"Grateful for the traditions that have strengthened our own, we strive
to avoid misuse of cultural and religious practices while seeking ways
of appreciation that are respectful and welcomed."
The amended sentence (as passed by the Board) reads:
"Grateful for the traditions that have strengthened our own, we seek to engage cultural and religious practices in ways that call us into
right relationship with all."
