About Unitarian Universalism
is very natural to wonder, "what do Unitarian Universalists (UUs)
believe and what do they do on Sunday?" This is rather difficult to
answer. UUs believe that there are many paths to an understanding of
the sacred, and that while there are elements of truth in different
religions and philosophies, UUs doubt that any one person or creed has
the final or complete answer. We believe that it is important to have a
place where we can support each other on our different religious paths.
The process of how we search and how we support each other is more
important to us than the details of our specific answers.
may seek an understanding of the sacred through 'mainstream' and
'other-than-mainstream', Western and 'non-Western' religious
traditions, philosophy, music, art, and literature, as well as through
social action, and our own experience.
You will find much
diversity here. For example, Some persons believe in God, while others
do not. Many are somewhere in between! You will find that some of us
speak of attending services as "going to Church" others insist on using
the word "Meeting House", or "Fellowship".
We know that this
may be confusing to you, it confuses us too! However, confusing as it
may be, embracing the diversity of our beliefs and practices can be
invigorating, and sometimes even fun! Belows are some resources to
introduce you to Unitarian Universalism.
