UUA Ad in Time Magazine Oct. 5

As many UUs have heard, the Unitarian Universalist Association has placed a full-page ad in this week's issue of Time magazine. The ad (available in PDF form here) reads:
IS GOD KEEPING YOU
FROM GOING TO
CHURCH?

Nurture Your Spirit. Help Heal Our World.

Maybe you’re uncomfortable with the idea of God — or at
least someone else’s idea of God. Yet maybe you yearn
for a loving, spiritual community where you can be
inspired and encouraged as you search for your own truth and meaning.

This is a church, you ask? Welcome to Unitarian Universalism.

Over 1,000 congregations nationwide. We invite you to join us.
(It should go without saying that the PDF version is a heck of a lot more visually appealing than the blockquote above.)

Here's how another atheist in my UU congregation reacted:
As someone guilty of more than his share of griping regarding the UUA's comments on atheism, I have to say I like this ad a lot. Were I unfamiliar with UUism, I would read that advertisement and be intrigued.
That goes for me, too. The ad isn't perfect, but it's very good; it's a nice first step toward UU outreach to nonbelievers.
