As one of those pesky SBNR people – you know, “Spiritual But Not Religious” – I’ve been very active in my faith life… blogging about prayer and positivity with Sue Bradford Edwards, Lori Strawn, Karen Laven and Abi Wurdeman at praypower4today; writing prayers for Prayables.com and worldprayers.org. But one thing has been conspicuously absent in my spiritual practice, and that is a church home to call my own.
I’ve “auditioned” a few local churches, and the one that seems to be the best fit for the “part,” if you will, is the Unitarian Universalist church. This liberal, social-activism-centered faith seems to welcome all with open arms and to jibe with my beliefs. Anyone else have a suggestion for an open-minded, non-dogmatic church that affords women positions of note in both clergy and laity?
