Join us here as we tackle such "big picture" topics in a spirit and atmosphere of unfettered freedom, utmost personal honesty and profound respect. --

No new posts [4] "Seekers and Free Spirits...Together"
Renewal of our non-hierarchical historic commitment to free agency and personal discernment in religion (e.g. right of conscience). Also, recognizing the collective nature of the quest, that we are committed to be not just our brothers' and sisters' "keepers" but also one another's teachers as well... to grow faith communities that work to empower all seekers to be their own prophets and priests.

No new posts [8] "Church and State...Revisited"

No new posts "Communion of the Free"
-- What does it really mean to be a Unitarian Universalist? What is that special something-- that "chemistry" -- that legacy we've inherited over the centuries and still share together as a "communion of the free"? What are (or should be) our highest values and virtues, premises and priorities, ideals and mutual expectations? And, who ultimately gets to decide, anyway? --

No new posts "We Celebrate Life!"
-- An area for discussion of a practical, relevant, "this-worldly" approach to religion and spirituality -- in step with the needs and challenges of an ever-changing, ever-shrinking world. We celebrate a "living faith" motivated more by the "pull" of hope, love, and courage of convictions, instead of the "push" of fear and guilt, dispair and fatalism. --
