The UU Salon

The Big Questions in life, answered by Unitarian Universalist bloggers. It's not "the" answer. It's "their" answer.
Because that's how we UUs roll.

September's Big Question: What I did on my...

...summer vacation! You may have noticed the UU Salon has been empty for a few months. We decided to take a long break, due to extreme busy-ness over the summer months for both of us. Did you miss us?

We're back!

Here's the big question for September: What did you do on your summer vacation, that made you stop and really think about your faith and/or your theology? Did it bring you new insight, or reinforce what you already believed? Inquiring minds want to know!

The Salon is OPEN!

May Big Question

"I wanna know what love is..." or at least what it means to us. We use that word a lot, we Unitarian Universalists who are standing on the side of love.

We love our neighbors - good. We also love broccoli (some of us), or the latest Julia Spencer-Fleming novel. Hmmm... Do we use the word too much, too casually? What do you think?

The Salon is OPEN...

What is Your Great Passion?

You're out in public -- say, in a mall -- and you hear a group of people, their backs toward you, talking about something.

What would they have to be talking about in order for you to walk over, introduce yourself, and say, "I'm sorry, but I couldn't help overhearing ..."?

Supposedly, this can give us an indication of what our great passion is.

This month, the UU Salon gets personal. We want to know what your great passion is.  What fires you up, gets your motor running, makes you want to leap into the fray?

The Salon is OPEN.

A bit of housekeeping this month. The question -- no need to write about it on your blog, just put it in comments -- what questions would you like to see The UU Salon ask?

February Big Question

In Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe, Greg Epstein writes:
"Do you believe in God?" is a totally meaningless question. The real question all people - whether secular or religious - ought to be asking themselves and one another is "What do you believe about God?"

That's the Salon Big Question for February. What do you believe about God? (Regardless of whether you believe in God or not.)

December No Question

We're taking a break. One of us just survived finals week - the other is in search. Neither of us is ready for the holidays...

Our best wishes to all of you for a merry holiday season, however you celebrate!
