UU is a non-creedal religion with a long history of liberalism, pluralism, and unconventional thought. (UUs consider Michel Servet, who was burned at the stake in 1553 by Jean Calvin, to be an early influence and hero.) UU members explore and variably embrace, each according to his/her conscience, the best elements of humanism, Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, earth-based religions, scientific explanations, and/or indeed any expression of the "divine" or the "humane" – including agnosticism and atheism. UUs generally support the concept that humans are a part of the interconnected web of all life, that we are stewards of our planet, and that we have a duty to leave this world and society a better place than how we found it.
We are glad that you have found us and invite you to explore further here online and also to join us for our gatherings once a month.
Maybe you found out about us through our brochure but if not, here are the highlights:
- Do any of the following sound like you?
- "Well, I'm spiritual, but not very religious.”
- “I used to go to church/temple/mosque but I haven't been in a long time. There were just too many rules.”
- “I have my own personal faith.”
- Do you think science complements religion?
- Do you believe that spirituality should promote equality among all people?
- Do you believe in pursuing justice, equality and compassion?
- Do you believe that we are responsible for our planet's health?
- Do you describe yourself as “progressive” or “liberal” with regard to your beliefs?
