Expertise

Will answer all questions regarding Unitarian Universalist (UU)church; including ancient history (Universalists go back to at least 250 A.D.) and medieval history (Unitarians look to 1553 A.D. as their beginning) up to merger of the two movements in 1961 and continuing up to present. Am familiar with Christian church organizations and relationship of UUs to traditional churches.

Experience in the area

Currently member of Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, Colorado. Past vice-president of Board of Trustees and currently on Membership Committee. Have taught UU history for over 20 years. Have attended Unitarian Universalist General Assemblies (annual meetings held in June) for past 15 years.

What do you like about this subject?

The Unitarian Universalist Church is, in my opinion, the only church in the world that supports each individuals spiritual search.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Hope to learn more on how modern Unitarian Universalist beliefs have been shaped by exposure to Eastern religions.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Less than 10% of Unitarian Universalists count themselves as "Christian" even though both Unitarian and Universalist historical figures considered themselves "Christian."

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Unitarian Universalists are sometimes referred to as "The thinking person's religion." Also, I have heard that they have an extremely high disposable income, but contribute very little.
