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.
