The Future of Religion?
Many people have espoused the idea that Unitarianism (now Unitarian Universalism) is (or should be) "the religion of the future". The most famous proponent of this idea, Thomas Jefferson, is said to have stated his expectation that Unitarianism would become the universal American religion in his own lifetime. Yet, this obviously hasn't happened. So why does Unitarian Universalism have so few followers, and what must we do to fulfill our promise? This service explores some possible answers to the first question and offers suggestions about the second.
