Essays Upon a New Unitarian Universalism
We are Unitarian Universalists. Perhaps you don't know us, which is why you are here. Perhaps you do, but would like to know more?
We are your neighbors here in South Florida, and your co-workers. Our children sit next to yours in their classrooms. You may not know our name. But you probably have seen us or our ministers, serving meals in soup kitchens or taking the microphone at civic meetings. Or just wandering down a nature trail, enjoying a beautiful day.
Like snowflakes and human beings, none of our congregations are exactly alike. Our history, which goes back for centuries, was forged on the belief that while we may take many paths on the search for meaning, all deserve respect.
But we are joined in common truths echoed in many faiths: That the desire for spiritual truth is universal. And that every open heart deserves a home.
The best way to learn about our faith tradition, is to visit one of our local congregations listed below. Each unique in its own way, as is the case with all Unitarian Universalist congregations. Explore the websites of all ten plus the Church of the Larger Fellowship.:
All ten congregations in this area are part of the UUA Southern Region, where you can find helpful information about programs, services, and other congregations in Florida, and the Caribbean.
WHAT IS UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM?Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion -- that is, a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We are a "non-creedal" religion; rather there are many commonly held beliefs that we identify as our shared Principles and Purposes. Our religious symbol is the Flaming Chalice.
