I remember reading a short essay by Dr. Maya Angelou, where she said she is always amused when people tell her they are Christian.
“Already?” she asks them.
At the time I first read this, I read it through the eyes of a smug, anti-Christian, anti-religionist, anti-anything-ist.
I’ve been a member of my UU congregation for more than 8 years, and it is only recently that I began to actually say the words “I’m a Unitarian Universalist.” And, as soon as I did, I heard that booming voice of Angelou, chuckling and echoing through my head and heart.
And the answer is, of course, “No, not yet.”
But I am leaning that way, more and more every day.
