I came to UUCCI after prior experience at other Unitarian Universalist churches. While living in California I went church-shopping, and the UU church seemed to suit my needs best. Later, moving to Knoxville, Tennessee, I felt sure that the UU church would be the only place I would feel comfortable. I stay because it’s great to be...

I came to UUCCI after prior experience at other Unitarian Universalist churches. While living in California I went church-shopping, and the UU church seemed to suit my needs best. Later, moving to Knoxville, Tennessee, I felt sure that the UU church would be the only place I would feel comfortable. I stay because it’s great to be part of a community that wants to make the world a better place. In some ways it’s similar to the Catholic Church I grew up in, but more welcoming and inclusive, and especially more fair to women. I was always a feminist, even before I knew what the word meant.

I love being a member of this congregation, whose members continually aspire to grow in generosity, inclusivity, justice-making, community building and developing a meaningful spiritual life. They inspire me to be more courageous than I could be by myself.

After being invited to visit several times over the years, we finally attended a service. I remember a display of paintings by Gretchen Marks, and a duet sung by artist Bob Pulley and his wife, poet Nancy Pulley. Being very visually oriented, these things in combination with the beautiful building had great appeal for me. We were...

After being invited to visit several times over the years, we finally attended a service. I remember a display of paintings by Gretchen Marks, and a duet sung by artist Bob Pulley and his wife, poet Nancy Pulley. Being very visually oriented, these things in combination with the beautiful building had great appeal for me. We were not unhappy at our previous church, but UUCCI has become a very important part of life for us and our grandsons.

I came to UUCCI when I was new to town, and searching for a community of like-minded souls. I found something so much more! I’ve made wonderful friends, given my children a constant moral compass, found ways to use my skills for a purpose. I discovered a home away from home, filled with an amazing, loving, beautiful,...

I came to UUCCI when I was new to town, and searching for a community of like-minded souls. I found something so much more! I’ve made wonderful friends, given my children a constant moral compass, found ways to use my skills for a purpose. I discovered a home away from home, filled with an amazing, loving, beautiful, supportive family. I came here wanting to fill an emptiness, and ended up being filled to the brim with genuine community.

We ended up at UUCCI because of proximity. After driving by the building on Goeller Road whenever we went anywhere, we started asking questions from neighbors who attended here. We were members of another church and were not unhappy there, but this gave us what we were looking for in a church. I stayed and became involved...

We ended up at UUCCI because of proximity. After driving by the building on Goeller Road whenever we went anywhere, we started asking questions from neighbors who attended here. We were members of another church and were not unhappy there, but this gave us what we were looking for in a church. I stayed and became involved because this church helps me crystallize what is important to me about trying to change things little by little in the world. This was the springboard for me to get involved in a number of non-profit organizations where I now volunteer.

Eight years ago — after struggling for decades to find a place for ourselves in various one-dogma-fits-all churches — we “came home” to UUCCI. In this community, we found a place where our beliefs were not dictated to us but where our search for truth and meaning was encouraged and supported by others on their own diverse,...

Eight years ago — after struggling for decades to find a place for ourselves in various one-dogma-fits-all churches — we “came home” to UUCCI. In this community, we found a place where our beliefs were not dictated to us but where our search for truth and meaning was encouraged and supported by others on their own diverse, unmapped quests. And, we found friendships not bound together by like minds, but by loving hearts. We feel so fortunate to be a part of this Unitarian-Universalist congregation.

My childhood included substantial influences from the progressive political and labor movements of the great depression. Also my family included several artists who were part of the 30’s bohemian crowd. They were of the agnostic and atheist persuasion.   Our Unitarian lack of dogma or superstition is very compatible with this background. In 1976 I joined the Columbus...

My childhood included substantial influences from the progressive political and labor movements of the great depression. Also my family included several artists who were part of the 30’s bohemian crowd. They were of the agnostic and atheist persuasion.   Our Unitarian lack of dogma or superstition is very compatible with this background. In 1976 I joined the Columbus Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, which has always welcomed “free thinkers” of every persuasion including myself. What has really been wonderful over the decades is the joy of making new friendships amongst thinking people of diverse backgrounds. We have every age group and persuasion, businessmen, engineers, teachers, and professionals in our church. I’ve found every member to have an interesting story to tell about their path to Unitarian Universalism and feel like we’re all peers. It’s a great joy to be a member of this congregation.
