No more bowling alone.
Scott Wells has capitalized on a brilliant idea: a group blog as blog-incubator for his fellow Unitarian Universalist Christians. The new group effort, Fish Bowl, already includes four writers I'll be eager to follow. And while I hate to appear partial, I am especially happy to see Tom Schade joining the blogosphere. He suggests that Unitarian Universalism is not so much afflicted with its own orthodoxy or even "orthopraxy" (a favorite neologism among seminarians), but that it is tilting heavily toward "orthopatheia", a fixation on feeling the right things.
And I wonder: Could group blogging offer a way to revive First Days Record or to bring a periodical like the Unitarian Universalist Voice to a wider audience? (The Voice is a quarterly; P.O. Box 3104, St. Louis MO 63130; $25, $15 students.)
If you are blogging about Unitarian Universalism or liberal religion, or have comments about this site, I'd love to hear from you.
