More news on America's declining religiosity.  This should be good news for UUs, but I wonder if many of these "nones" are beyond the reach of even a liberal, non-creedal faith.
The number of Americans who identify as Christian has fallen nearly eight percentage points in only seven years, according to a new survey.

This is an interesting concept. I've certainly met lots of people whose beliefs and views are UU, but they aren't interested in Sunday Services. Maybe this can produce a model to reach them.

The author of this piece is a UU who served time in Federal prison for interfering with a government oil and gas lease auction for public lands.  I believe he submitted "fraudulent bids" to keep oil and gas extraction from occurring.
