Note From Timothy

I first learned of UU in the 60’s, while in the Air Force and Electronics Officer’s School in Biloxi, Mississippi. A classmate and his wife invited me to a Sunday service. That was the first time I had heard of UU.

The service was in a modest building that was built as a house up on high pilings back in a bayou –super atmospheric! The guest speaker that morning was a young man who had recently graduated from Rabbinical school. We sat in a circle, he told us of his schooling and what it was like being a young Rabbi and we all talked. Having grown up Methodist, this was a revelation, a new way to “do Church”! I was hooked and have been UU active ever since.

I formed a group in the early 2000’s called the UU Infidels when I lived in Fredericksburg, VA. We had a booth and did a workshop at the 2004 UU General Assembly in Long Beach, CA. Loads of stories from that activity, one involving an in-person encounter with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia that was picked up by the press.
My first attending UUCB was while living in Berkeley in the early 70’s.
