"May we find the courage to live our faith,
To speak our truth, and to strive together for a world
where freedom abounds, peace prevails and justice is done.

May we know the fullness of love without fear,
and of security without oppression. May we hold one another
in the deep and tender place of compassion,
and know that the divine spark within makes soul-mates
of us all."


(...from "chalice lighting ceremony," Unitarian Society of Madison, Wisconsin)

-- So glad you stopped by! I'm Ron Stevens, a long-time UU now living in the "Low Country" of South Carolina, USA. Thanks so much for sharing with us your interest in ethical, inclusive and spirit-centered instead of dogma-driven religious faith!

-- Just a few additional notes...

Exclamation -- Some general "use of forum" rules and guidelines are included in the thread titled "Housekeeping," at "Forum News and Announcements." Please take a moment to glance over them.

Exclamation -- Again, like all message boards, its success will ultimately depend upon active participation and support of its users. Like they often say about democracy, UU is also best understood as being "more a participatory than a spectator sport." To me, this applies just as much to our "online communities" as our "in-person" ones...so, please do join us in our conversations--and feel free to start your own threads here--whenever you can, OK. (We like the company.) Let's work together to make this a real "community project."
