Today’s trivia question asks who the Unitarians and Universalists considered merging with before they ended up combining. A logical follow-up would be to ask: who do you think the UUs should merge with today, or in the future?
Mergers have been a major story in American religious history, just as schisms have been. With the marriage of the Unitarians and the Universalists seemingly on divorce-proof ground at this point, it might be fun or interesting to speculate on who else might join the club.
Which religious groups would you like to see the UUA merge with? Why? Idle speculations and outright fantasies are welcome here, but if you think there’s an actual chance of merger, please outline your thoughts on it. What might the next step in liberal religious union look like?
