Unitarian Universalism has enriched my life for forty years. As a young mother, I could not accept the Christian dogma I was raised to believe without question. I refused to raise my sons in those churches. I thought I’d have to go it alone. For a long time, I just “quit church.” But, something was missing.What I missed, I thought, was community with upbeat, positive people. I was lucky to find them in some of the churches my family attended, but community alone wasn’t enough. I needed that, yes, but I also needed a spiritual community which allowed me to follow my own developing spiritual path.
