A big God

I've had a few questions on why we are going to the Uniting Church. My off the cuff answer is that 'they have a bigger God'. If I was to explain it more fully I'd say that they express and practice expresses a God who is more generous, forgiving, loving in a way which does not have the conditions applied.
When I write 'practice' it is in the terms of declaring it from the pulpit, as well treating everyone with true equality no matter what they are present or past.

Ok, and as someone else who has just started going to an Uniting Church, can you explain this a little more? I have always liked the Uniting Church though, as a general rule there is so much focus on mission in terms of the poor, the oppressed and even the environment.
