22. Sigh
UU's walk the walk better than just about anybody, and then scrupulously fail organizationally.

Within Boston city limits there are four churches that identify as UU. One of them (which was the one where I got married, not at all coincidentally) is called Community Church of Boston. It's an explicitly activist church, and has been for nearly a century. They have an open pulpit, where they invite people who aren't UU (and may not even profess a religion) to speak, especially activists. Their reception hall is called the Guatemala Room, and it's decorated with agitprop art. It's a pretty cool place, and I'm not generally comfortable inside a church.

The 2005 directory listing all the UU congregations in the country omitted to mention that it exists-- a state of affairs apparently engineered by the other three churches in town.

Anyway, I think the work you're doing is more important than the credentials. And I have a :hug: for you if you want it.

(And props for the poster above quoting Matthew. I want a bumper sticker that reads MATT 25:40.)
