"Church for Atheists and Others," Rev. Kenneth Watts
What does it mean to be "the church"? What benefits are to be gained
by being part of an organization that still ties itself to terminology
used for two thousand years by the Christian tradition and our own UU
tradition that was born out of 18th century liberal understandings? And
most importantly, "Why not just abandon all religious groups and stay
home or go golfing?" (That last one is very tempting at times and I must
admit to giving in on occasion!) I have a chaplain friend who says she
worships at the "Church of Serta" every Sunday morning! This service
will offer a few ideas for Atheists and non-Atheists to ponder. Sue

Regular Service times
Our single Sunday service is at 10:00 am
during June, July and August. From the first Sunday after Labor Day in
September through May, we have services at 9:30 and 11:15 am. Nursery
care is available, and we have a children's
religious education program during regular services.
Unitarian Universalists believe people are ultimately responsible for
their own religious beliefs and practice. We don't try to tell anyone
"this is what you should believe" or "this is how you should live."
Instead, we seek to build a supportive community in which individuals
can explore and share their spiritual understanding.
Rev. Elizabeth Greene, and choir member Adelle Thomas
The Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BUUF) is a community of
members and friends, a mix of long-time Unitarian Universalists, people
who have left the church of their youth, spiritual seekers and avowed
atheists, Christians, Jews, agnostics, and humanists. We share a sense
of mystery and wonder of the universe, allegiance to the scientific
method, love of nature, and tolerance for diverse religious beliefs. We
share respect for life and the land which sustains us, and a commitment
to individual responsibility and freedom of belief. Follow the link to
our Membership page to learn more about
