I first discovered Unitarian Universalism about 10 years ago when I attended a Sunday service in Athens PA. My wife and I were pleased to find a group of people and an approach to spirituality that greatly appealed to us and we have been "UU" members since then. The lack of dogma, the acceptance of diverse beliefs and ways of life, and the fellowship of a community bound together by a set of humanistic principles have been very important to us.
In 2003, we moved to Northeastern PA, joined the UDUUF, and this Fellowship has been our spiritual home since then. We have a small but very welcoming community that cares for and supports each other, and makes a significant contribution to our larger community. I'm proud to be a part of this group and it is an important part of my life here.
