I was scoping out some Unitarian Universalist churches in cities we might consider moving (years from now) and I found this statement on the website
No matter what beliefs you hold, you will feel right at home with us.
Hmm. That must be a pretty amazing church. I don’t want to make fun of this or read more into it, since I think it is probably a well-intentioned effort by a volunteer making the webpage, but one could speculate that this is often one of the challenges with UU churches – this idea that is is possible to be all things to all people. And, may I just note that all the churches I am scoping out DO NOT INDICATE HOW BIG THEY ARE. It is such a difference if you have 25, 75, 100, or 200 on a Sunday morning. But usually the “about us” section is the history of the church. Not actual current information. Again, that could be over-interpreted to say something about how too many UU churches (or UU institutions in general) focus a bit too much on the past and all our wonderful accomplishments in history. But, really I think people just don’t think enough about webpages and that is all the interpretation necessary.
