What About Spirituality?
Have you been considering or using self-descriptions such as the statement "I am spiritual, not religious" or checking "none" on a religious affiliation survey?
You may still be yearning for a deeper spiritual life, a deeper relationship with the universe, or an integrity to your religious path that allows you to engage on your own terms towards ongoing spiritual growth. This is best accomplished amongst other seekers who are committed to an honest search for truth and meaning. These other seekers must be supportive without being coercive. They must be open to new truths. And, they must not fear doubt. Only doubt can shine truth on the path. And, the right path has nothing to fear from the light of truth.
The community at All Souls in which the diverse voices of seekers can be heard and their questions can be asked would challenge many. But it so enriches us.
The descriptions, "spiritual" and "religious" can be cherished separately or together with others in an open atmosphere of dialogue and discovery.
We Take Diversity Pretty Seriously. One of our ministries calls us to fight the oppression of the LGBT community by "Standing on the Side of Love".
Standing on the Side of Love is a campaign sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association and promotes respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We believe that no person of any immigrant status, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, ability level, or political view should be dehumanized through acts of exclusion, oppression, or violence.
