Rock on, Cuumbaya

Joel Monka has a truly fabulous post about growing the UU church.

If only UUA leadership were running programs like this instead of getting themselves arrested on TV.

who honestly can't even remember what cause Sinkford was protesting when he got himself arrested.

Ps. His post on 9-11 conspiracies is really good too. Some time ago, somebody asked me if I wanted to debate about what happend on 9-11, my side being that the 9-11 report is a substantially accurate recounting of what happened. I was concerned that I didn't have the technical know-how, so I nominated theCSO and Joel to debate in my place. The moment they started sounding like they knew what they were talking about, the opposition totally disappeared.

I wondered what happened to that debate.

What rocks so hard for you about Joel's suggestions?
I think it's pretty well known that Unitarian Universalists consider religious education to be a smattering of knowledge about "world religions." I don't think that many parents are overly enthused by that. We lose as many people using that approach as we gain.

Also, how does hosting a series of holiday services (many of which we have no cultural or religious connection to at all) position our congregations to be anything but holiday chapels? How does that encourage anyone to join, get involved, or do anything but consider us another product they're buying a few times a year?
