The Unitarian Universalist Association includes a number of large churches, but no “mega-churches.” Why? As Rev. Dr. David Breeden explains it’s partly because UU fellowships aren’t great proselytizers. We don’t go door to door spreading the “good news,” but rather wait and hope that those who need us will find us.
“Prairie Home Companion” host and Minnesota icon Garrison Keillor has been known to poke fun at Unitarian Universalists, and to accuse adherents of caring about nothing but social justice.

Dr. David Breeden suggests that Keillor has some justification for taking shots at the church, but on balance he is wrong if he thinks the UU movement has no spiritual basis.
MVUUF’s Rev. Dr. David Breeden discusses humanism, belief and the UU church’s tradition of theological diversity. He also explains why he refuses to identify himself as an atheist.
