Hi folks,  I'm president-elect (will be prez in '12) of the Unitarian Universalist Community of El Paso, TX.  For a while now, I've been thinking about how to reconcile my deep involvement with UU, with my increasingly firm commitment to naturalism and non-theism.  I've decided that (a) UUism offers benefits to me that have nothing to do with "religion", but a lot to do with community and self-actualization; and (b) I can't be president of a UU church without taking the opportunity to "evangelize", at least a little bit, in favor of atheism.

Thanks for the advice. We do have a local UU church. I was looking for some other university students that might attend our local congregation, but to no success. I do see the minister at events around town. I think that I may introduce myself to her. This may make it easier for me to celebrate with the sometime.

I have some experience with my local UU congregation.  It's been a mixed bag.  I'm hoping to share UU experiences with others.

I can understand the discomfort of visiting a congregation where you don't know anyone. Did you check out their site? Maybe you can meet some people there through social media and then feel more comfortable about attending without your friend. Some UU churches are more social network savvy than others & some are more friendly than others &, unfortunately, few are very racially diverse, though it's improving and we're being intentional about it. It might not be a problem for you living in Montana, but I see you're in the Black Freethought Forum, so I guess it's not totally irrelevant.   I'm currently reading Mark Morrison-Reed's book "In Between: Memoir of an Integration Baby" who is a lifelong UU, now a retired minister in Canada. There are also these sites that might interest you:

I have been wanting to attend our local UU Church for quite sometime, but my friend who is UU is always asleep on Sunday mornings...grr!

Going to the UU church this weekend and the topic is "Bible Study for Skeptics." It sounded too good to miss, and I am hopeful.

Joke: You know what you call an Atheist with children?

A Unitarian Universalist

My parents were also Atheist (though my mother was more Agnostic than my dad) and very active in the UU church in El Paso (there is still a plaque there from 1972 with my father's name on it). When I'm talking to people about UU, I always point out that each UU congregation is different and if you don't like one, try another (and go at least twice because things can change from week to week).

I used to tease my girlfriend about being a UU. "Isn't that the church for atheists who haven't figured out they don't have to go to church anymore?" But, I have found so much value in being UU. There is always a value to community
