Can you believe that we are just about to hold our 10th online service together? We could not know, even in the midst of our very real missing each other in person, that our online services would help us to feel this sense of community and connection.
While it may not be what we wanted to have happen, there have been little wonders and surprises – seeing old familiar faces, having more folks in attendance, still being able to share our joys and sorrows. Learning that is not the building, which we love and just recently rededicated, that makes us who we are – it is the people and our principles, and how we live them out: that’s what makes us who we are.
I have been paying attention to many sources of reliable information. Science-based information. Local, national and global. I have been creating models for what our shared life looks like going forward: creating them in my head and some on paper. Some basics stay the same, some change with the latest news. All of them tell me that this is not just a few months and then “back to normal.” All of them tell me that we are in this for the long haul. Click here to read more…
We have other online offerings throughout the week — meditation, connection circles, bedtime stories for children. Join our mailing list uutus (at) comcast (dot) net to learn about the schedule and the links to join.
Letter to the congregation regarding COVID-19 here.
Who are we? We are an eclectic group of individuals coming together in community since 1955, committed to growing ourselves, each other, and sharing our gifts for the healing of the world. Some of us knew we were Unitarian Universalists before we stepped foot here. Others discovered it over spending time as part of the congregation. Some are still figuring it out.
We gather not because we share the same beliefs about the nature of god and the universe (we don’t), but because we believe that each of us is a gift and all of us together have a necessary role in making the world a better place.
We are a people across the age span – young, old, and in between — with an engaged and engaging religious education program on Sunday mornings, as well as Affinity groups to fit a variety of interests and cultivate connection.
We are proud to be a congregation that affirms people of all races/ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. We are officially a Welcoming Congregation, knowing that our world and community is made richer by the presence of gay, lesbian, bi, straight, transgender, and genderqueer folks.
We are people who have doubt, express skepticism, embody faith, and welcome questions as much as answers – sometimes all at the same time.
We are called into community to believe what we must, to follow our path and support others on theirs, and to continually seek a purpose greater than any single person.
Our is a liberal religious tradition: we believe that truths are continually unfolding and are to be found in many sources, ancient and ever-new.
We understand that each of us individually, and all of us together, are part of an interdependent web of existence – that we can influence that web, but are also influenced and formed by it.
What joins us together is our engaged respect for each other, our commitment to the principles of Unitarian Universalism, and the ongoing promises we make to create a community together.
