I am one of the few UUS who was raised in the church and has stayed a UU. I tried to convert to another religion when I married a wonderful man who was raised to believe other things about the here and now and the hereafter, etc. It didn’t take. I asked too many questions and didn’t accept enough of the doctrine on faith. It’s not that I reject those beliefs. Quite the contrary, I believe that anything is possible and that all of us has the obligation to ourselves, to explore every possibility. I have come to realize that just because I don’t believe something, that doesn’t mean it isn’t true, and of course vice versa.
Greta Crosby once said “No one has a corner on the truth” meaning that we all see the same thing in a different way. I attend UUCY to learn about other ways of thinking about the world. I also come to be with people who share my values…and I come because there are some very good cooks in the congregation, and I like food.
