About UU

Our Unitarian Universalist Principles

We believe:

That each and every person is important;

That all people should be treated fairly and kindly;

That we should accept one another and keep on

learning together;

That each person should be free to search for what is

true and right in life;

That each person should have the right to vote about

things that concern them;

That we should work together for a peaceful, fair and

free world;

That each of us should care for our planet Earth, the

home we share with all living things.

The Six Sources of Inspiration

The living tradition we share draws from

1. Direct experience of that transcending mystery

and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which

moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an open

ness to the forces which create and uphold life.

2. Words and deeds of prophetic women and men

that challenge us to confront powers and struc-

tures of evil with justice, compassion and the

transforming power of love.

3. Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspire

us in our ethical and spiritual life.

4. Jewish and Christian teachings that call us to

respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as

ourselves.

5. Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the

guidance of reason and the results of science,

and warns us against idolatries of the mind and

spirits.

6. Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions

which celebrate the sacred circle of life and

instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of

nature.
