This week at uuworld.org: Pete Stark's humanism.
Doug Muder attends a ceremony honoring Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) for acknowledging that he doesn't believe in God, but discovers that Stark can't understand what the fuss is about. Stark is one of two Unitarian Universalists currently serving in Congress. (Related from the UU World archives: Bill Murry on the emerging religious humanism and William F. Schulz on the history of humanism in the Unitarian Universalist tradition.)
In the news, Don Skinner reports that independent UU organizations are adapting and responding to the loss of affiliate status under new rules applied by the UUA Board earlier this year. Forty of 46 affiliates that applied to renew their status have been turned down; two applications will be reviewed at the board's October meeting. (Earlier coverage: "UUA board approves two affiliates," Tom Stites, 6.29.07.)
And Sonja Cohen rounds up another week of Unitarian Universalists in the media.
