Apart from changing planes at O'Hare, I've never been to Chicago: never have been to the Art Institute, never have ridden the El, and never have visited much less attended a certain double-initialed Unitarian Universalist-related seminary.
Last night, in a new members' orientation, I told a U of Chicago grad-soon to be new member that I didn't go because of the weather. (We're having the first touch of fall in Washington.)
Matthew Gatheringwater rather coveniently spells out one of the two more compelling reasons I chose against Meadville/Lombard in his entries, "Pardon Me, I'm a Unitarian" and "Mysteries." (The other was the cost of attending.)
