embracing diversity

I went to a same-sex wedding celebration at a Unitarian Church this past weekend and it was amazing. The diversity represented at this church and at the ceremony was awesome. There were different ages, different races, different couples and family types, all experiencing a religious ceremony in an encouraging and non-judgemental way.

I have been to a few Unitarian services in the past and found the lack of a single theological foundation uncomfortable for me (they pull pieces and parts from a range of theological and philisophical thoughts). However, their commitment to embracing diversity is solid and something my church, my denomination and well, practically ever other denomination out there needs to learn from.
