Join us for the 2019 Convo in Baltimore!

Please join us October 17-20, 2019 for the Convocation of UU Studies. 

Sponsors: The Unitarian Universalist History and Heritage Society, Unitarian Universalist Collegium, andMurray Grove Retreat and Renewal Center.

The theme will be a celebration of the 200thanniversary of William Ellery Channing’s sermon “Unitarian Christianity” and the 250thanniversary of John Murray’s arrival in North America, looking at the theological and social justice implications of what they preached – not only in their time but in the decades that followed.

We invite participants and presenters to engage with the legacies of early Unitarian and Universalist historical figures and to consider the impact they had on shaping the theology, ethics, and practice of contemporary Unitarian Universalism.

Convo 2019 Schedule


Collegium is a mutually supportive network of academic and independent scholars, ministers, and students, most but not all of whom are Unitarian Universalists.

This group involved in scholarly pursuits related to Unitarian Universalism and to liberal religious studies more broadly has met annually since 1975 to share mutual interests and work-in-progress. Members gather for a weekend each October or November, alternating between a Boston-area location.

Sessions include papers presented by members as well as presentations by an invited Distinguished Scholar.
