Keeping up with our friends, the former UUs.
I'm not fond of sharp lines marking the borders of that nebulous circle called "Unitarian Universalism." But distinctions are useful, and it makes sense to me that John Cooley limits the feeds he features on UUpdates, the amazingly useful aggregator for UU blogs and websites, to people who identify as Unitarian Universalists. But what happens when a dedicated Unitarian Universalist decides that they no longer feel at home in the UUA, and you've grown used to following their online writing using an aggregator?
I miss reading Shawn Anthony's Lo-Fi Tribe in my frequent visits to UUpdates, just as I miss reading Michelle's Metacentricities (formerly Pearlbear's Blog) — and very much as I will miss the eventual departure of Scott Wells's Boy in the Bands and James Estes' Peregrinato. So I've created another Kinja digest called Former UUs. I think of it as an aggregator of friends who have moved on or are moving on to other communities. (And because of the catholicity of my Unitarian Universalism, they're all still featured in the UU Blogs Kinja digest I also maintain, even as they've headed for the United Church of Christ.)
Feel free to recommend other blogs by former UUs in the comments. This is not, however, an invitation to recommend anti-UUs sites.
