We are so happy you're visiting our website! We update it frequently, so be sure to drop by often. And please let us know if there's anything you would like to see but cannot find here.
As a happily diverse community, we attempt to remain engaged with each other's differing views. Thus, we learn while sharing, remaining open to rational argument or spiritual enlightenment.
This allows us to minimize doctrine, ideology, dogma, creed, or any kind of fundamentalist, authoritative ideas that are not to be disputed or doubted. Those things can lead to suffering.
The glue that binds us together is the love of our community and an affirmation to promote the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism.
Many of us feel our spiritual lives are grounded in a sense of the fullness and connectedness of all things.
You can comfortably be spiritual without being religious in this community of seekers if you choose. (a choice not offered everywhere)
