Seekers Welcome Here

 

A Home for Spiritual Exploration

 Whether or not UUF's Sunday services are like any you have experienced before, you may find many of your values reflected in the words and music. Beneath the different styles of expression, we are united by shared values.

 

We are primarily concerned with how we should live, individually and collectively, so that we might become better people, partners, parents and citizens.

 

Our services might present readings from theism, religious humanism or a variety of ancient or modern myths. At first, it may sound strange to hear language that expresses spirituality in such diverse ways. Beneath the different styles of expression, we are united by shared values.

 

 

 

 

 

A Religion for Both

 

Head and Heart

Whether it's an issue of vital community interest or a program that explores your particular spiritual quest, you can find your place here. While each member would probably express his or her beliefs a bit differently, the following are just some of the things many of our members believe:

 

• We believe that we're a part of Life, and owe something back to the world for the gift of life.

 

• We believe that almost all religions are saying that we are precious, worthy people who need to treat everybody else as precious and worthy people.

 

• We believe that we are supposed to live in such a way that, when we look back on our lives, we can be proud, and can make those we care about proud.

 

• We believe that truth, justice and compassion are requirements for living.

 

• We believe that love is better than hatred, understanding is better than prejudice, and that if there is ever to be a better world, people of widely differing beliefs will have to help each other build it.

 

• We believe in creating a world where all people are encouraged to develop and live out a fulfilling philosophy of life.

It is a sacred

time, this, and

a sacred place,

this:

 

a place for

questions more

profound than answers,

 

vulnerability

more powerful

than strength,

 

It is a sacred

time, this
