I guess this will be a Unitarian Universalism blog now...

The first thing I'd like to say is that I can't even begin to express my gratitude for those who have felt so moved by what I've written in here (even if it's just the one entry) that they felt compelled to spread awareness of it through any channels available to them. This is undoubtedly my first experience with the opportunity to be writing to an audience which is both ridiculously exciting and mildly terrifying. The point is that due to the recent influx of readership and in light of the specificity of said readership, I will be doing two things: 1. I will be updating this blog once a week (every Monday) and 2. I will be attempting to at least loosely skew the content of the blog toward matters at least loosely related to Unitarian Universalism. It's the least I can do to gratify whatever audience I have been lucky enough to be gifted with and have gathered for me.

So. Here's something I wrote down in a moleskine during today's service that I thought might be a nice jumping off point:

"The Sanctuary's myriad of translucent panes lets such light in that, as the sun goes and comes out from behind the clouds, light pours into and drains out of the room like waves crashing on a shoreline or lungs inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide, giving the room the appearance of being alive and, perhaps, indeed, giving it life."

Actually perhaps I should let that sink in for now and then I'll have a real update for you all tomorrow.
