Church Experiment #14: St. John's Unitarian

I must admit, the only previous experience I’ve had with the Unitarian Church is a joke from The Simpsons. Reverend Lovejoy serves Lisa a bowl of “Unitarian ice cream,” and when she points out the bowl is empty, he says, “Exactly!”

Baaa-zing!

Walking into St. John’s Unitarian Universalist Church (www.stjohnsuu.org)—which, at the time, was right down the street from my apartment—I assumed anything goes in a Unitarian Church. Not that it was filled with a bunch of heathens, but that as long as you believe in some type of god, you’re pretty much good to go. Which I knew would play well in that community. The Gaslight District in Clifton is very liberal and incredibly diverse (which I love). Although my first impressions weren’t completely accurate, what I experienced was pretty close to what I expected.
