Universalists 222 birhday

222 years ago on September 14, 1785, a group of New England Universalist Churches joined together to form the New England Convention of Universalists. this eventually became the Universalist Church of America. I didn't see the UUA celebrating their birthday (or is it their parents birthday?)

In honor, I had a cup of ice cream (the fact that it's still in the 80s at 9:30 PM might have something to do with that too....)

and what did you do to celebrate?

To be fair, the 1785 convention was the earliest, but did not create an institution that lasted. Call it the funny great aunt of the UUA, not an ancestor proper.

The Universalist General Convention descends from the 1793 convention.

ah, ok, but rather than the funny great aunt, it might have been the first awkward date. (anything for a reason to eat ice cream)
