Hello! I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Carly, a rising college senior. I was raised UU and couldn't imagine a better community. I noticed that this group isn't a very active one, but I wanted to just put my name and face (or rather, icon) out there. I hope I can get involved in some good discussion here!

Thanks! I did not know the church went by a different name over there.

yeah in the Uk the "Unitarian" denomination is a merger of the Free Chrisitan Church (basically liberal Christian) and the Unitarian Church (originally very Protestant - Presbyterian or Calvininist - which became more rationalist in approach and perhaps deist. A very 18th century movement). How they ended up merged together is a long story but the two dont sit very well together. There was for a short time also a Universalist Church in the Uk who believed that Jesus' sacrifice on Calvary was so great and earth changing that all people of any religion were saved.
