Birth of a congregation

The first meeting of the Brockport Unitarian Universalist Fellowship was held this morning with an enthusiastic group of hopeful people.

Unitarian Universalism is not dead but very much alive in the hearts and minds of people who love UU values and want to celebrate them at home and in the wider world.

Creating an opportunity for people to come together to celebrate UU values and to express this faith and optimism in the world is very unusual. Usually if it bleeds, it leads, but in this case it is gratitude and joy that leads the way and gives one hope not just for one's own life, but for the lives of others as well.

Our first step is to develop our vision and assumptions about what is possible and to engage people in this shared vision.

We are off to an auspicious start. I hope that you will pray for us, send positive wishes and thoughts our way, and help us articulate our vision and assumptions not just for ourselves but for our church and the world.
