Only a Few Children was written by Dorothy Spoerl, a vital historic Unitarian Universalist minister and religious educator, in 1979. Small congregations, or congregations with few children (and those are not necessarily the same) comprise a major portion of the Unitarian Universalist congregations. Material from workshops by this same name will be updated and included in this section. This section is devoted to the proposition that these congregations provide a rich educational experience for all ages.


A major resource for small congregations and congregations with small religious education programs is the Church of the Larger Fellowship.
