Welcome Unitarian Universalists

Glad you found us!

A longtime UU and Cohousing advocate, Joani Blank wrote this article Cohousing: What’s so UU about it? In it she mentions “I’ve long noticed that Unitarian Universalists seem to be over-represented in cohousing groups-in-formation and in completed communities. In my community we are six households out of twenty, or more than 25 percent).  A few months ago I raised this question on a cohousing e-mail discussion list, and the discussion that ensued supported my observation. One interesting fact is that in a number of places, the “burning souls” who had started the community were UUs.” She also talks about several values she identified as shared by Unitarian Universalists and most cohousers in four of UU’s seven principles.
