Blog in review: January 2006

I was a more intense blogger in 2006, with (it seems) a more practical focus on denominational matters. So I’ll be making my reviews month-by-month.

My No-Heller experience

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006

“What about a No-Heller church?” Oh yes. . . he knew about that.

Forever congregation?

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

Bruderhof update

Bruderhof’s UK publishing house has been coaxed back online

Plow ahead, wash, rinse, repeat

Aggregation, more than collaboration, I feel is the key to success

Sometimes I lament the loss of nearly all the Universalist Christian churches to the winds of history, fortune, theological fights, and mergers (with Unitarians and others.)

Pagans, Christians, and the cost of temple administration

When intellectual rights are relaxed — not even as far as public domain, but including such — it is possible for different people to build on common work, each giving it a particular nuance, without having to start from scratch.

Federated and community?

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

There are two kinds of church with membership in the UUA that come across as odd to those unfamiliar with the concept: federated churches and multi-denominational community churches.

Not even a whole room Sunday School

Do you know of any models, theories, or suggestions that could help the one-or-two child congregation?

  1. Hmm, guess I need to find and post my picture of the Saluda No-heller church building, dont i?
    and to add a postscript to my post in that same message, we know that the Charleston SC Universalist had a burial ground at the church site. We don’t know what happened after the building was sold.
    (to those of you to whom this message makes no sense, will just have to go back to the Jan 2006 post!)
