"Other religious traditions...point to a book or a person or a creed that carries ultimate truth. Liberal religion does no such thing. We talk instead about...the freedom of each individual to believe as his or her conscience demands. Faith cannot be coerced, it cannot be given by tradition; it must be uncovered afresh by each believer in each generation. We are always learning."  
~ Rev. Douglas Taylor.

Congregants holding hands, singing Spirit of Life

Spirit of Life, come unto me.  
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion.

Blow in the wind, rise in the sea; 
Move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.

Roots hold me close, wings set me free; 
Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.        
Carolyn McDade

Unitarian Universalists covenant with each other in our congregations to “promote and affirm” seven Principles.  We live within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience.  We have a legacy of “deeds not creeds.” Our work for a better world calls us to unexpected places as we harness love’s power to stop oppression. Our justice efforts are grounded in our congregationally-driven social justice statements and our call to break down divisions, heal isolation, and honor the interconnectedness of all life and all justice issues.
