I’ve attended services at about ten UU congregations in various cities, and I was a choir member at Unity Temple in Oak Park, Ill. While I loved Unity Temple, its congregation, and the highly articulate, compassionate, and thoughtful sermons of its minister (who has since moved on), I never became a member because I couldn’t spare the money. Since then, I’ve tried to get involved at other places, but nothing ever stuck with me. For me, organized religion of any sort, even if it comes with no set creed, isn’t a high priority. So I’ve shelved the idea of joining a UU congregation for now. Nonetheless, I do still attend a service once or twice a year, because sometimes, it’s good to be around people who affirm your basic principles. If that’s what you need, and if your values seem to fit in with Unitarian Universalism, this is definitely a worthy and possibly quite rewarding pursuit.
