Why not reach out to those who already say they are part of us?

Held in the Light asks: Why not reach out to those who already say they are part of us?

I'd like to see some research on these folks, but knowing a few, I'd say forget the reach out.  They identify, but don't expect them to commit.  They've already decided not too.  Identity's the extent of their effort.

You can't build Churches (or a Movement) with folks who will not commit to do the hard work of building either.

Sadly that statement applies to rather too many people who are members of UU congregations, to say nothing of UU clergy and UUA leaders. . .
