This week at uuworld.org: The power of stories.
Need a story break? Try "The storyteller by the sea" from award-winning Unitarian Universalist storyteller Josh Searle-White's new collection Magic Wanda's Travel Emporium. (It might be fodder for the blog conversation PeaceBang launched when she asked why there's not yet a Chicken Soup for the UU Soul.)
In the news, Don Skinner reports that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has allowed veterans' gravestones to be incised with the symbols of all sorts of minority religions — including the UU flaming chalice — but continues to deny the use of the Wiccan pentacle. He also reports that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden, N.J., evicted a UU congregation from the meeting space it has leased from a Catholic campus center because the UUs invited a speaker from a gay advocacy group. (It looks to me like the UUs got caught in the middle of an intra-Catholic culture war between the more liberal campus center and the conservative Knights of Columbus.) As always, Sonja Cohen keeps watch on Unitarian Universalists in the media.
