Our Association With Other Unitarian Universalists
Unitarian Universalism was born from two faiths, Unitarianism and Universalism, eventually uniting in the nineteen sixties. Both of these religions came out of the rejection of authority and hierarchy. So, note that our affiliation with a district organization and an international organization does not imply that these organizations impose upon us or any of their affiliated churches in any way. As a matter of fact, the basic premise of Unitarian Universalism springs from a reverence for freedom. This distinction is explained because it is unfamiliar and sometimes confusing to anyone who comes from a hierarchical religious tradition. And this can be said of most other religious traditions. Now with that said, note that we freely choose to associate with the Unitarian Universalist Association.
