Happy days. I’ve been waiting for years to see a well-reviewed Canadian sitcom, Little Mosque on the Prairie (aka Little Mosque) and it’s now available on Hulu. It’s about a small Muslim community in the fictional town of Mercy, Sasketchewan. Cute, quirky, a bit broad and gently preachy in a distinctly Canadian way. And then… Continue reading Is there a Unitarian congregation in Mercy, Saskatchewan?
American Unitarians and Universalists have, for about a century, kept and extended fellowship through a series of institutions, the largest and most notable today is the Church of the Larger Fellowship. The British (and independently the Scottish) Unitarians and Free Christians have a similar fellowship. And the Quakers have one globally. But when I discovered… Continue reading Notes from another church fellowship
Given (and celebrating) the organizational unification of the Romanian Transylvanian and Hungarian Unitarians, I wonder: are there any Hungarian-language Unitarian churches or worship groups outside Hungary or Transylvania?
I was searching online, clicking links and reading tonight when I found this charming, touching and pleasingly funny film short. It’s about a Jewish congregation in the East End of London trying to keep a minyan on Yom Kippur. Spend ten minutes and — if your congregation is in peril — hope. “The Tenth Man”… Continue reading A short film of hope for dying congregations
Today was the first day for the Annual Meeting of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches. Blessings to all y’all in Staffordshire! And they have — presumably for presenters — a customized Powerpoint template. (Link to PPT file.) Must help keep a consistent theme with a minimum of effort. And one can… Continue reading Good idea for meetings: presentation template
I’m a member of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship and also the Unitarian Christian Association, its British counterpart. Membership is available to persons worldwide; outside Europe the annual dues are £ 20, or about US $32. And they take PayPal. A worthy group, if you have it to spare.
British Unitarian blogger and minister Andrew Brown blogged about Univeralist leader Robert Cummins´s counsel to ministers in his own time, excerpted from one of the last Universalist polity manuals, pre-consolidation. Still in Dvorak, but typed faster!
Good news. Just now a tweet from Derek McAuley, the Chief Officer of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christians Churches, a.k.a. the British Unitarians. New Unitarian Fellowship to be formed in Canterbury, Kent. First service 7.00pm on Mon 26 Sept, Friends Meeting Hse, 6 The Friars CT1 2AS That’s the spirit. (The next… Continue reading Unitarians in Canterbury: no tall tale
The Unitarian Christian Association is an affiliated society of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, a.k.a. the British Unitarians. I’ve wanted to join for some time; I like their publications — I almost wrote publicans — and tone. But without access to a pounds sterling account, it has been impractical to try.… Continue reading I’m joining the Unitarian Christian Association
Dear friend, colleague and Unitarian Universalist minister Victoria Weinstein is on her way to that “sceptred isle” to lead worships, workshops and other meetings. I hope she’s able to work in some milky tea, mash and pie. Most of her time will be in and around London, but there are other events, and if you’re… Continue reading Victoria Weinstein — in England
