This week at uuworld.org: The Web and liberal religion.
Doug Muder wonders if the Internet is changing society in ways that will help liberal religion thrive. The printing press, after all, made the Protestant Reformation possible; could the Web usher in a new era of liberalism in religion? [Update: Discuss Doug's essay with the author over at his blog, Free and Responsible Search. I've also launched a discussion of his essay at Street Prophets.]
In the news, Sonja Cohen reports on the General Assembly's "Open Space Technology" initiative; Tom Stites and I report on other General Assembly business and some of the gathering's larger themes; and Kenneth Sutton gathers a handful of quotes from major addresses. (The GA stories are from the Fall issue of UU World, which goes in the mail at the end of the week.) And Sonja Cohen tracks another week of Unitarian Universalists in the media.
(If you forgot to read last week's uuworld.org stories because I was on vacation and didn't tell you about them, check out Rosemary Bray McNatt's essay on Louisa May Alcott's Unitarianism and news stories about the First UU Church of New Orleans and a First Principle-themed theater group at the UU Church of Annapolis.)
