We come from many faith traditions, and from none. We are a covenental community. We covenant to affirm and promote a culture of compassion and acceptance in our relations with one another. We promise to listen with the intent to understand and to communicate in an honest and respectful manner, even when we disagree. We acknowledge that conflict is an opportunity for growth.
The living tradition which Unitarian Universalists share draws on many sources:
Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
Words and deeds of prophetic menand women which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life;
Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving neighbors as ourselves:
Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of them mind and spirit:
Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the thythms of nature.
We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith. Get involved!
