    >>I don't know if they maintain the name, but at one time there was a Unitarian-Universalist Church. My recollection is that it was an amalgamation of two groups with the separate names.

    Yes, the Unitarians (i.e., no trinity) and the Universalists joined some time ago.

    What do you get if you cross a Unitarian Universalist with a Jehovah's Witness? Someone who goes around knocking on doors for no apparent reason.

    Universalism goes back at least to Origen, a major reason why he is considered too heterodox to officially rank as a church father.

    C. S. Lewis has some possibly helpful images of heaven versus hell in The Last Battle, Pilgrim's Regress, and the Great Divorce.
