Living Our Mission: UUCA Art Gallery, and Emory University

UUCA is a creative community that challenges us to see the world with new perspectives and gives voice to the human spirit through music and the Arts. One of UUCA’s best kept secrets is about how its art gallery is the longest continuously functioning one in Atlanta history. In 1966, when our present building opened, we held a festival of the arts. Currently, our gallery features a children’s art show. The work was created by UUCA children, teens and UUCA’s preschool, Atlanta Progressive Preschool. 

On Wednesday February 3, the “second annual” Unitarian Universalist service was held at the Cannon Chapel of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.  Candler is both a graduate school of theology within Emory University, and a Methodist Seminary.  Candler is a very progressive school and is the destination of choice in the South East for Unitarian Universalist ministerial students.  Rev. Marti Keller, Rev. Jeff Jones, Rev. Terry Davis, Rev. Julie Lepp, Norm Horofker and Duncan Teague are all Candler students or alumni, to name a few.  For the past two years the UU students at Candler have been presenting a service at the school in February.  This year UUCA was represented by the participation of Duncan Teague, Norm Horofker, and Don Milton III.  This service presents an opportunity to raise the profile of Unitarian Universalism at one of the nation’s leading seminaries.  There was a reception after the service that was sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Minister’s Atlanta Cluster.
