This year, attendees will reflect on and explore the variety of interconnections they with have with one another (as friends, as young adults, a UUs, as fellow human inhabitants of the earth) and with the world, both in its fragility and brokenness, and in its awesome capacity for resilience, beauty and inspiration. They will weave this exploration of strength and fragility and interconnections, throughout the week together in workshops, worship and in the bonds created in friendships new and old.
