Who?

ChaliceChick is having a Contest to fix UUism
On of her suggestions is:
Don't forget church polity. Don't suggest something that the UUA can't do.
I honestly don't think that the UUA is the best agent for change here. I think that looking to the the UUA for leadership slows down the kind of dynamic growth we need. (in both size and maturity)
Somewhere around two-thirds of people who call themselves Unitarian Universalists aren't members of UUA member congregations. Any move by the UUA is by default a minority move. The first step to fixing Unitarian Universalism is to remember that the UUA doesn't own it.

That said, I'll probably be making an entry.

Please do.

FWIW, my husband is one of the non-UUA folks who considers himself a UU.

He'd join up if the UUA stopped making political statements on its members behalf.

I suspect that a lot of the Non-UUA folks have a "I'd join if..." statement about the UUA

The Emerson Avenger's latest missive about UUA leadership or, more properly, a rather shameful lack of it. . .
