Unitarian Universalists organizing north of Charlotte

Metro Kannapolis? Greater Salisbury? I have a certain affection for that part of south-central North Carolina. (Enough placenames for Google hits, ya think?)

Jeff Pender and some other Unitarian Universalists near Lake Norman are trying to organize a new Unitarian Universalist congregation.

I wish them well. Good use of a blog, too. Details here.

"A History of Universalism in North Carolina"

Today I received an unexpected parcel from Peggy Ward Rawheiser, a well-known figure in heritage Universalist circles: her new revision of the classic A History of Universalism in North Carolina. I’m quite pleased to receive it. (Thank you.)

At first I thought I would review it in full, but since it functions more like a sourcebook — and a big one; image a Unitarian Universalist Association directory — than a conventional secondary history, I’ll have to come up with a different mode of analysis.

Some will want a copy whatever I have to say, so I figure the least I can do now is leave behind ordering informtion:
