2. Unitarian Universalist
Edited on Mon Dec-06-04 10:46 AM by rogerashton
This name results from the merger of the American Unitarian Society and the Universalist Church in the early 1960's. (They had been talking about it for roughly 80 years!). UUA is noncredal, so the chances are that you will be welcome and will be fine. It does depend a bit on where you are. I understand that in Massachusetts, where unitarianism was first established, some UU churches are remarkably traditional and might seem less suitable for you. In other places there could be tensions between pagans and atheist/agnostic/humanist groups in a particular church, and some traditionally Universalist churches (again, I am told -- not speaking from knowledge) are more emotional than rationalist in their services. On the other side, some Unitarians can be very cold in their rationality. Well, me for one. /
