My UU friend just came out with a book about being a humanist. He defines humanism in his prologue and then says in chapter one, "I was born [in] 1933... [in] a small, poor Negro suburb of Norfolk, Virginia." How many UUs do you know who can say that? He's Christopher C. Bell and the book is The Bits and Pieces That Make Me: A Campaigner for Secular Humanism. Spread the word!

I don't feel that way at all, but I was raised UU so I feel kind of lucky in that sense. What is it about UU that you don't like?
Just out of curiosity, is anyone going to Louisville, KY in June for General Assembly and was anyone in Phoenix last year for the immigration justice thing?
We have a really nice place also. I prefer to call it UU Center opposed to church. Our congregation is less then 15 years old but we built a new church/center from the ground up about 3 years ago. It is in a beautiful wooded area on a large lot with the closest neighbor being a college.
Hi Sunflower and welcome. Glad you found a congregation you like. Some congregations are more theist than others. I was lucky to join a newly organized congregation with a very large Atheist and Agnostic membership. I have visited other UU churches over the years and if some of them were my first UU experience I may not have returned to any UU church. Not that they were bad, just too Christian for me. Unfortunately there are not that many churches in most areas for people to compare a few. But I always tell people that are considering checking into UU is to try more than one congregation if possible and even go to the same ones more than once since they can be different from week to week.
Welcome, Sunflower! What is so beautiful in your UU church?
The blog, Camels With Hammers, wrote a pretty lengthy post about atheists in the UU community, questioning what value we find in it. http://freethoughtblogs.com/camelswithhammers/2012/04/25/atheists-i...
I was at the rally with a few members of the South Jersey Humanist group.
