What does a UU look like?

The Rev. David Gillespie has a blog named "David's Dish" and on March 15, 2008, he had an interesting article entitled, "What's a UU look like?"

Rev. David crunches the numbers from the Pew Forum's U.S. Religious Landscape Survey 2008. He finds some surprising things in terms of UUs age, geographical location, income, and educational level. If you are interested in demographics, Rev. Gillespie's article is a place to start.

Most UU congregations are white and would love to welcome people from all racial and ethnic backgrouns. We tend to be older although there have been younger family folks coming in larger congregations. 

At UU congregations everybody is welcome: young and old, rich and poor, Ph.D's and drop-outs. We welcome people of all races, religions, sexual orientations.

Unitarian Universalism is a huge tent, and a UU looks just like you. Won't you join us?
