Who We Are: Our Liberal Faith Tradition

Posted in Unitarian Universalism by starrkinguu on October 20th, 2019

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religious tradition that was formed from the consolidation of two religions: Unitarianism and Universalism. Both religions have long histories and have contributed important theological concepts that remain central to Unitarian Universalism. Since the merger of the two denominations in 1961, Unitarian Universalism has nurtured its Unitarian and Universalist heritages to provide a strong voice for social justice and liberal religion.

What We Believe: Diversity in Theology

Posted in Unitarian Universalism by starrkinguu on September 22nd, 2019

Unitarian Universalism is predominantly a faith of “come-inners,” those who joined the church as adults, with a minority of “born-inners,” those who were born or grew up as UUs. We may come from the faith tradition of our childhood, or we may come from no faith tradition at all. Most of us have in common, however, the experience of being raised in a tradition other than Unitarian Universalism. Stories abound of UU congregants saying, “I was always a Unitarian Universalist, but didn’t know it,” or “I finally found a church community where I could express my beliefs and have them accepted.” Gatherings of newcomers express joy at finding a community of like-minded people. Hear testimonials about "Building Your Own Theology" by Donnie Rett and Beth Ogilvie as well as a sermon by Rev. Maria Cristina.
