Thinking out loud, what would it take to produce a small hymnal suitable for the smallest fifth of Unitarian Universalist churches? (And by extension, new congregations and perhaps not a few overseas.) For the sake of argument, I mean the “UU mainline” that has a somewhat removed, but not exclusionary, tack towards Christian hymnody.
Later. A fact to help. I analyzed the certification numbers for congregations in the UUA looked at the smallest fifth of congregations by average worship attendence. For those that answered (and certified) the smallest fifth is all congregations with average attendance of 35 or less.Â That itself is a common definition of a “family” sized church.
