The biggest limiting factor for me (ever) preaching at a Unitarian Universalist church is not theology — really — but physical distance. I refuse to get a car to get to church, whether to visit, supply, or potentially pastor. I don’t need one in the rest of my daily life. (Friends I’m visiting may ask, though.)
Which made me think: lacking a robust rural or urban mission, the UUA has to be about as suburban as a denomination can be. Surely rapid post-war growth had an impact.
And the book Suburban Nation is having an impact on me.
Has anyone else read it?
