This is the story of our Cluster.

Well, that is one cluster but this cluster is a bunch of Unitarian Universalist churches. The way the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association) is set up the Churches and Fellowships are grouped into Cluster by geographical area. The Southeast Cluster of the UUA Southern Region runs from Stuart south to Key West in eastern half of the state. It also includes the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The UUA Southern Region extends from Florida north to Virginia and west to Texas. The Cluster does not run the congregations. It's role is to encourage sharing and teamwork. The UUA is a bottom up organization. This next passage is taken from one of our pamphlets:

"Our congregations are self-governing. Authority and responsibility are vested in the membership of the congregation. Each Unitarian Universalist congregation is involved in many kinds of programs." (Excerpted from "We Are Unitarian Universalists", pamphlet #3047 Unitarian Universalist Association, 1995) So what does the Cluster do? Our job is to facilitate communication between Churches and Fellowships. We try to be a clearinghouse of information. Each congregation has representatives to the cluster and we meet every quarter and let each other know what is going on each congregation, what programs and social action we are involved in. This helps us to concentrate our energy when needed and exchange ideas, thoughts and concerns. It also helps with publicity and marketing. Members of the cluster help each other out with special events such as canvass dinners. The Southeast Cluster board also appoints a person to board of the SWIM (Southeastern Winter Institute in Miami).

 The Unitarian Universalist Association is headquartered in Boston and provides resources to congregations, develops Religious Education programs, coordinates selection and calling of UU clergy, spurs social action, and does many other things on a national level.

But we are not always serious! The cluster has been known to sponsor social events; these might include campouts, potlucks and other such gatherings. UU's do like a party.
