The Church of The Flaming Chalice

The Church of The Flaming Chalice is the working title of an idea I have for a Unitarian Universalist (UU) TV show or miniseries. The idea would be to explore a fictional UU church and UUism more broadly. The program would be set in a reality that is like ours but slightly off. This would be so the program could fully explore themes, subjects and events without having to worry if it got all the minutia of this or that theme, subject or event rite. The program would take place in the present day and have many flashback scenes. It would explore such themes as, local UU congregational life, what it is like to grow up UU, convert to UUism, be a UU minister, UU youth culture, and what UUs believe ect. It would touch on such historic UU events as the coming together of Unitarian and Universalism, the disbanding of LRY and the formation of YRUU. It would I think be targeted at UUs themselves and be made available for download online. I think if made it would be a wonderful program for congregations to screen for their member to watch together. But for now it is just an idea of mine. But if this kind of project would be of interest to you do leave me a message in the comment box below and I will get back to you. And who knows what will ultimately happen to this idea? In fact it may just have lags. We will have to wait and see what comes of it.
