Unitarian Universalist bloggers.
A round-up of recent blogging by Unitarian Universalists:
The Rev. Charlie Ortman, the new UUA trustee from the Metro New York District, keeps a trustee's blog!
"Gomi Girl" writes movingly about joining a Unitarian Universalist church in Florida (second item, dated 9.14.03):
It's not as easy as it sounds. A lot of our members, like me, came from highly religious, structured backgrounds. Years of questioning our faith, wondering if we're going to hell, feeling alone and uncomfortable in our skins. Becoming a UU is a lot like coming out of the closet. It's a painful process of admitting that maybe - just maybe - the "road to salvation" is not what our parents told us. Not what our friends told us. Not what the TelEvangelist with the stereotypical Southern Dialect told us. It's hard to admit that maybe we were mislead by the people who cared about us most.
The author of "Across, Beyond, Through" explains the distinctive autobiographical roots of his blog's name.
Heather Janules ("The Chrysalis") observes that "some of our [congregational] disconnect with people from a working-class culture might stem from our religious pluralism".
David Soliday ("Facilitating Paradox") discovers the rub in the old joke that the UCC stands for "Unitarians Considering Christ".
Richard Hurst ("Universalist Sundays") has lots of good stuff: The Jehovah's Witness have Prince, but "all the Unitarians get is ... Pete Seeger." Plus, he launches into an interesting dialogue about homosexuality and Christianity.
And what has Will Shetterly been up to? His new novel will include portions set in the time of Jesus!
John K. Davis, who says he is now blogging full-time, had lunch with the Rev. Tom Owen-Towle— who I did not know is a magician! — but I'm willing to wager that Davis's Transhumanist Unitarian Universalist Network isn't the next big thing.
If you are a Unitarian Universalist — or religious liberal — with a blog that discusses your religion, drop me a line — and consider listing your blog at UU Blogs.
I am now maintaining an annotated directory of Unitarian Universalist bloggers.
