Rev. Melora Lynngood and Worship Associate Oliver Belisle –
It’s been true for a while now. Many mainstream progressive Protestant religions are losing members. Unitarian Universalism (UU ism) isn’t declining quite as drastically as the others – in many congregations, we are holding steady— but we’re not growing either.
Also, we have fewer Gen X‘ers and Millennials in our ranks than other ages. Why? We are a vibrant intergenerational community of progressive people that care for one another and the world we share. We support one another – and learn from one another – as we walk our various and varied spiritual paths. How can we offer this gift in a way that makes it accessible to a wider range of people? What new ways of doing things might we try?
