<Tom3> Hello Ed
<Tom3> hello
<Tom3> hello
<MetaEd> oh! hello.
<MetaEd> goodness, I had long since given up on anybody popping in.
<Tom3> hello
<Tom3> well, chat usually starts at 6pm Pacific
<Tom3> I'm glad you dropped by
<MetaEd> :)
<MetaEd> I got here from the UU Cafe website.
<Tom3> That's good.
<Tom3> It is a slow night tonight, but don't be discouraged.  Friday and Sunday nights are usually lively
<MetaEd> Due to my schedule I'm afraid I must resign myself to slow nights :-]
<Tom3> that's okay.
<Tom3> I've offered to let CLF use Monday night, so it may pick up a bit in the future
<MetaEd> My reason for dropping by is pretty specific. I am looking for a community to raise children in.
<Tom3> Hmmmm
<MetaEd> By that I mean a religious or social community (not a geographical 
  location).
<Tom3> Have you checked the UUA website?  They have a comprehensive list of UU churches
<Tom3> UU has excellent religious education.  My daughter loves it
<MetaEd> Yes. I found a number of UU churches in my area and I plan to visit some.
<Tom3> Great!  I hope you find one you like
<MetaEd> My fiance feels children should have the benefit of "coming of age" in a community. There's nothing
<Tom3> UU has a good program for that, it is called YRUU
<MetaEd> is that meant to be read, "why are you you?" :)
<Tom3> I think so, UU has lots of cute acronyms like that.
<MetaEd> I can see from my reading that there is no confirmation sacrament. But we feel the function of confirmation is to invite the child to take a place as an adult in the society. Does YRUU have that function as well as an educational function?
<Tom3> Sort of, UUs aren't as deeply into ritual as most religions.  But there are some things.  This would be good stuff to ask at the churches you're visiting
<MetaEd> I appreciate your taking the time to talk with me!
<Tom3> Sort of, UUs aren't as deeply into ritual as most religions.  But there are some things.  This would be good stuff to ask at the churches you're visiting
<MetaEd> I assume there's a lot of diversity among churches (I mean in addition to diversity among members).
<Tom3> oops
<MetaEd> :)
<Tom3> I hit the repeat key by mistake
<Tom3> Yes, no two UU churches are alike, from what I can tell, but all follow the same basic principles
<MetaEd> I see the YRUU website lists providing for rites of passage as one of its goals. Thank you for pointing that out.
<Tom3> Good
<Tom3> You're welcome
<MetaEd> So what goes on here besides taking questions from greens like myself? :)
<Tom3> Mostly just chatting on UU topics and other things.
<Tom3> Sorry I'm not very talkative tonight, I'm getting sleepy
<MetaEd> After ignoring you for goodness knows how long, who am I to judge :)
<Tom3> lol
<Tom3> anyway, I'd better call it a night, before I fall asleep on my keyboard.
<Tom3> It has been nice to meet you, please feel free to drop in again...
<MetaEd> ok, thanks again for being so helpful, and have a good night!
<Tom3> and I hope you find a UU church you like.
<Tom3> Goodnight!
