Transcript of We are Unitarian Universalists video.
We are Unitarian Universalists.
We are people of many paths who are brave,
curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers.
Every day, people are inundated with information,
overwhelmed by demands, and pulled
by a culture that seeks to divide us from the web of life.
Unitarian Universalism reconnects,
bringing people together with meaning and inspiration.
We are a house without walls, a congregation
without spiritual limits, and a movement
that calls you to put more faith in yourself, your community,
and your beliefs.
We are a faith that honors your mind, your heart, your journey.
Simply put, we are a guided path towards a better
you and a better world.
Grounded in hundreds of years of thoughtful religious
communities, we are people of many generations, ethnicities,
genders and sexualities, and spiritual backgrounds.
People engaged in making the world a better place.
People focusing on what really matters– love, justice,
integrity, and hope.
Unitarian Universalists have different beliefs,
but shared values.
We are Unitarian Universalists, and at the same time
we may also be agnostic, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu,
humanist, Jewish, Muslim, pagan, atheist, believers in God,
and those who let the great mystery be.
The diversity of beliefs you’ll find
in a Unitarian Universalist community
is one of our strengths.
We are always learning how to see the world
from a different perspective.
What unites us are our core principles that
uphold seven real world values.
Believing in the worthiness of every person.
Showing compassion and fairness.
Accepting others for who they are.
Growing through a personal search for truth.
Leading with democratic spirit.
Working for justice.
And understanding that everything is interconnected.
Seven days a week, Unitarian Universalists
live these principles by doing.
When we gather we worship, reflect, and remind ourselves
what matters most in life.
Whatever our age, we learn to live
with more wisdom, more awareness, more gratitude,
and more soul.
We show our values by showing up to answer
the call for social justice.
We have a track record of standing on the side of love
for civil rights, LGBTQ equality, immigration reform,
environmental sustainability, reproductive justice,
racial justice, and more.
Find what it means to live your deepest values out loud.
Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith.
