For Parents New to Unitarian Universalism
We've tried to collect things on this page that parents new to Unitarian Universalism might find valuable, helpful, and insightful. Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, the great Jewish Reconstructionist theologian, mused that "Religion asks three things of us: to believe, to behave, and to belong." I would suggest to you that different faith traditions ask these three things of us in different proportions. In the Unitarian Universalist tradition, we lean toward the behaving (e.g. social justice is in our collective DNA) and belonging (we are a covenantal body), but not so much on believing a prescribed way (we are non-creedal/non-dogmatic). Perhaps Being is a better description for Unitarian Universalists than is Believing. There is a place for you here. Come and be made whole. How can we help your journey?
“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” ― Paulo Coelho
