Unitarian Universalism (UU) Theological Perspectives

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity.

While our congregation upholds shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists may discern their own beliefs about theological issues. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, Unitarian Universalists are free to search for truth on many paths.

We welcome people who identify with and draw inspiration from Atheism and Agnosticism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Humanism, Judaism, Islam, Paganism, Theism and Deism, and religious or philosophical traditions.

Words of Wisdom? Daily Devotionals on New Blog

Words of Wisdom? Daily Devotionals: wordsofwisdom.uucg.org
Each month, our community focuses on a particular theme.  Through this blog, we invite you to explore those themes with us through daily reflections that may become for you a way of finding wisdom on your way.  Or, they may lead you to your own reflections that become wisdom. That's why we call this blog "Words of Wisdom" QUESTION MARK.  That little question mark is our invitation for you to join the reflection. You may sign on to the blog each day, follow links you see from Facebook, or sign up to follow this blog with email reminders. You are also invited to contribute a daily reflection if you feel inspired. Contact Christiana McQuain or Bob Patrick.

  • Exploring the Welcoming Congregation Designation

 

Overview

For many years, UUCG has been on the long and winding road to becoming a Welcoming Congregation.  Last year, on Sept.9, 2012, the social justice committee initiated discussion again, and it was the consensus of all of us present at that meeting that we would engage once more, and complete the process.  A committee was formed (June, James, Nathalie, Ben Lower, Joanna Benshoof, Katherine Villyard and Kristen Allen) and work began anew.

There is a specific deliberate process to becoming Welcoming, and we as a congregation have completed that process by participating in monthly workshops on such topics as the common elements of oppression, gender socialization and homophobia, and transgender identity.  We have read monthly articles in the GNUUS, and participated in worship services, a panel, movie night, surveys, a pool party to celebrate the end of DOMA, PRIDE, a FB page, and Trunk or Treat. We would like to thank all those who participated in some way, and give a special thanks to the youth of UUCG, who perhaps articulated their feelings on this subject better than the adults, and to Rev Jan Taddeo, who embraced and supported the process whole-heartedly, both in the pulpit and out.  

With this vote we intentionally become a Welcoming Congregation.  We vote to be inclusive and expressive of the concerns of persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities at every level of congregational life - in worship, in programs, and in social occasions; celebrating the inherent worth and dignity of all persons.  We realize we will not be perfect in this intent, and mistakes will still be made, as it takes generations to dismantle homophobia and oppression.  But, we're on the right road as we enter a new stage in our congregational life together.
