Reflecting on a random act of kindness

Yesterday I was browsing Freecycle. Amid all the typical requests for laptops, furniture and miscellaneous stuff there was a post from a mom in a homeless women's shelter in my zip code asking for food and clothing for her kids. I was very much moved and felt a powerful impulse to help this woman. I replied to the post, went supermarket shopping, and met her at the shelter with bags of groceries. Such a great feeling, but wow, so much "god bless you" and "god is working through you"... also so irritating! I responded by giving god absolutely zero credit, saying, "no, it's just humans on this earth helping humans, that's all." I think it's good for a religious believer to see that an atheist/humanist acts upon an altruistic impulse and feels nothing spiritual about it. I wonder if I changed the mom's outlook on that, but I wouldn't be surprised if she figures that I just refuse to accept that I was guided by the hand of god, because, how else in this effed-up world can her prayers have been answered?

Secular Humanist and Unitarian Universalist?

So, I have a confession: I'm a member of my local Unitarian Universalist congregation. I like it because it is a wonderful and supportive community. Also, there's no indoctrination; instead of teaching children what to believe, they simply tell them what different religions teach, and how to be a good person. And since UUism has no creeds, you can be a Humanist and still be UU. But technically it is a religion, so not sure quite if I should still call myself a secular humanist. Also, UUism isn't perfect by any means; sometimes we sing songs that mention God. Of course most UUs think of "God" as some pantheistic "ground of all being," but the g-word still makes me uncomfortable. What do you think?
