Quote
“If you phone a Unitarian Church between the middle of June and Labor Day in September, the most you are apt to get is a recorded message,” Charles S. Slap said in his sermon at the First Unitarian Society of Schenectady, N.Y., on Sept. 8, 1985. “Our more orthodox friends never cease to be astounded by the contents of the message: ‘This church is closed for the summer. If you are one of those people who actually need a church during the summer, try the Presbyterians.’ ”

Unitarians used to be mostly educated and professional denizens of New England. In the summer, they would take off for their summer homes on the Cape, and close church until they returned in the fall.

Now, though, Unitarians are having church all year long. Shocked

Kinda like the New England Episcopalians and thier "summer chapels" on the coast. They had small chaples that were only open during the summer to provide services for the people spending the summer at the beach.

if you call that church.

Where I used to live in California, they called it a "congregation". I guess "church" is too judgmental to them or something.

"Church" is a Christian term. Most Unitarians don't consider themselves Christians.

That's fine; we don't consider them Christians, either.

Yes.  They just presume to tell us what Christ taught and what the Gospel says.

I've never had a Unitarian try to tell me anything about Jesus. Most of them don't believe he exsisted.

I think I still have the literature when I went, boasting of how the average seminarian today has more theological education than the Fathers of Nicea I.  "Yes," I replied when they pointed that out to me, "that is how the Fathers got it right."
