Oh, I do so love Speaking of Faith and the fact that it runs its blog on Tumblr, which allows me to do this (reblog):
What Is a Unitarian Universalist?
Nancy Rosenbaum, associate producer
Thousands of Unitarian Universalists recently descended upon Minneapolis for their General Assembly, an annual event where “UUs” tend to a mix of congregational business, learning, worship, and fun.
On the first evening of festivities, we put several questions to about a dozen attendees:
- What’s a Unitarian Universalist, based on your lived experience?
- How did you come to this tradition?
- Why are you here?
We thought we’d change up our usual, straight-forward approach to video editing for this two-minute segment featured here. We’ll be posting a longer version of this footage next week, including a procession of UUs carrying stunning, hand-crafted banners representing their home congregations — from Bismarck/Mandan, North Dakota to Brooklyn, New York.
