A humorist asks “How many Unitarians does it take to change a light bulb?” The twelve members of the board set up a special committee of nine that decides to send out a questionnaire to 600 members and then tally the responses and prepare a light bulb changing resolution to take to the board meeting which will be debated, and amended and finally approved. Joking aside, I believe the practice we get conducting democracy in small groups such as a Unitarian Universalist Church is why our national democracy works-- when it does work.
Most sermons are by our settled minister, Rev. Roger Fritts. Occasionally a guest speaker gives the weekly sermon.
