July 30: How Much Church is “Too Churchy”?

Some people think Unitarian Universalism is “not a real church” – it’s the kind of criticism that you get used to when you belong to a creed-less faith. But strangely enough, some people check out UU and still feel it’s “too churchy”. Why?

Why do people come to a church like ours? Why do they keep coming, or not? What makes church different from a discussion group, a TED Talk, a Meet up group, a civics course? What elements do people connect with or have trouble connecting with when they come from other religions, or no religion?

Join us as we think about not only what makes church church, but how church and the beloved community relate to one another.

Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths we each travel. Our congregations are places where we celebrate, support, and challenge one another as we continue on our spiritual journeys.

Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.

Newcomers of all religious paths or none at all are always welcome. We are handicapped accessible. Please park in the rear of the building. Child care is usually available.
