“Just what have we done?” is Part 1 of a two part posting. Tune in later for Part 2 of 2: “Oh, I went there”
Just what have we done?
DiscoverUU.com is a nonprofit web site providing a liberal spiritual presence to the liberal political movement already alive online.
DiscoverUU uses the proven format of The Huffington Post, one of the most successful liberal news blog sites ever created, to provide a living community for spiritual liberals. It features blog posts from UU’s best ministers and bloggers, sermon podcasts, and regular UU News. This living community updates the site daily, encouraging visitors to check in regularly, and incorporate UUism as part of their daily lives.
Newcomers to the site are presented with the appeal of a live, casual, interactive dialogue of UUism, which more accurately presents the spirit of UUism and its “responsible search for truth and meaning” than stuffy, stagnant, theological or historical presentations.
DiscoverUU’s goal is to EDUCATE a young, ready, liberal community
FIRST Our goal is to attract new visitors in the hopes that they will begin to self-identify as UU’s.
That’s the ball game, right there.
Do you agree with the Seven Principles?
Consider yourself a UU. Yeah, you’re still a Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian, Deist, Evangelist, Friend, or whatever… (That was fun!) But you’re also a UU, and from now on, incorporating those cool ideas you’ve discovered in other religions is no longer taboo- it’s celebrated.
SECOND, as these intelligent, liberal, newly self-identified UUs begin to grow older and have children, DiscoverUU will help them seek out local UU churches to envision their ideals, raise their family, and develop community.
And THIRD, DiscoverUU would like to help coordinate charitable efforts, because THAT is the only REAL presence any church has at the community level, by going out and doing good works.
