Welcome to

Welcome! This is the blog for Rev. Thom Belote. I am the minister of the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church in Overland Park, Kansas. We are a growing, vibrant liberal- religious community spanning the generations. It is a fantastic joy to minister to this talented, dedicated, fascinating, and diverse group of people. If you are in the Kansas City area, I hope you'll visit us.

Who is this Blog for?
This blog is written for:
+ Those actively involved in the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church community.
+ Those in the Kansas City metro-area who may be seeking a liberal religious community.
+ My friends, colleagues, former-parishioners, fellow bloggers, and the wider UU community.
+ Those who happen upon it accidentally.

What content will I find here?
This blog is intended mainly to be a vehicle for posting sermons. From time to time I will post announcements, resources, or other written reflections. Plus the occasional miscellany.

How can I support this blog?
If you live in the Kansas City metro-area, come worship with us on Sunday morning. If you happen to be passing through town, drop by for a visit.
If you are a frequent reader not in the Kansas City area, and want to support the kind of liberal religion this blog promotes, you are welcome to send a tax-deductible gift. Your gift will be used to promote the use of technology to increase the voice of liberal religion. You can send your gift to:
