On many a Sunday morning Joan drives by the Lutheran and Catholic churches and notes that their parking lots are large – and full. When she arrives at UUFDC she notes that their parking lot is small and seldom crowded. She wonders at this. Most churches, she concludes, do a very good job of recounting the past and, apparently, that’s enough for most people. Few people, it seems, are bold enough to face the future and lead the way there. Thank goodness for the Unitarians!
