What Would a UU Religious Order Look Like? | Celestial Lands

Celestial Lands asks what a UU Order would look like.
What Would a UU Religious Order Look Like? | Celestial Lands

He mentioned Rev Marjorie Leaming, the wife of Chicago’s All Souls Rev Hugo Leaming, who I believe lived for a time in the 1950’s at Chicago’s (and Jenk Jone’s) Abraham Lincoln Center.
I linked it to UUA’s brief history and while the ALC inspired by Jane Adam’s Settlement House Movement, it was more than that; and I think fairly described as about as close as UU’s have come to putting bricks-and-mortar to a Religious Order.

The building was certainly big enough. It's massive.

The ALC still functions and the building still stands.  Neither tied any longer to Unitarian or Universalism, but when we had an order, it’s what one looked like.
