About Unitarian Universalism
Unitarian Universalism is the church of the open mind, the loving heart, and the helping hands.
Our open-minded, open-hearted spiritual communities help people lead lives of love, learning, and justice. As Unitarian Universalists, we don’t have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door. Instead, we come together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been. We try to be brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of being on the side of love, justice, and peace.
