Now this is the kind of news I like. Reported by the UUWorld online today, the Unitarian Universalist Association Board of Trustees admitted at its last board meeting the following new congregations:
- Unitarian Universalists of Blue Ridge, Rappahannock, Va. (42 members)
- Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Lake Norman, N.C. (32)
- All Faiths Unitarian Congregation, Fort Myers, Fla. (195)
There's rather more to the story -- confirmed by my memories of going back (I think) to 2003 -- but the UUWorld has the details. Not mentioned in the story is that it large for a relatively young congregation: 195 members, per its reported membership and 206 according to its latest posted board minutes. (PDF) Also, I don't think it was ever an "emerging congregation" but rather one that developed independently -- again, read the UUWorld piece -- and was admitted.
