SOURCES OF UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM

The living tradition which we share draws from many sources:

 

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;

 

  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion and the transforming power of love;

 

  • Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;

 

  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;

 

  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;

 

  • Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
