The Rev. Davidson Loehr, of Austin, Texas, wrote a scorcher of a letter to the UUA Board of Trustees about the Pathways church project, the role of spin, staff accountability, and what make (or doesn't make) Unitarian Universalism a religion. A must read, even if you don't reach the same conclusion he does. (And I seldom do with him.)
I would love to read the messages on the large church ministers' list he references. Were ministers in less august churches (or none) so informed? I missed my memo.
This link gets you the page where all the reports may be downloaded.
Later. The letter from Bill Sinkford and First Unitarian, Dallas, senior minister Laurel Hallman that Loehr mentions -- I assume this is it -- may be downloaded as PDF here. It is a memo to "all those interested in the Pathways 'fast start' congregation."
