This week the Rev. William G. Sinkford, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, released a letter regarding Transitions in Youth Ministry. In it he states that “it is true that YRUU as a continental organization has effectively ended.” This is, no doubt, the final word on the status of Young Religious Unitarian Universalists as an association-wide organization. This doesn’t mean that youth are no longer represented on a continental level. Sinkford states that “the mantle of continental youth leadership has been passed to those youth ably serving on the [Youth Ministry]  Working Group.” This is the group that has been charged to help “shape the future of our Association’s youth ministry.” Sinkford goes on to say that,  “of course, representative youth leadership continues at the district and congregational level throughout our Association.”

If you, or anyone–youth or adult–in your congregation, have had questions about the future of youth ministry in the UUA, this letter is essential reading. You can read it yourself here. And you can find a complete roster of those serving on the Youth MInistry Working Group here. You’ll notice that Prairie Star’s own Nick Allen is at the topic of this list. Of course, the list is alphabetical. But those of us who know Nick think he could be number one on a lot of lists!

My son (further down on that list, but still a good kid…) thinks that someday Nick Allen will be president of the UUA. Nick is a powerful young man. The future of UU youth is in good hands.

Thanks for the comment, Kari. I think that Nick and your son and the entire Youth Ministry Working Group are doing a great job!
