Principles of Religious Exploration

Our purpose is to involve children in a religious community in which they develop a spiritual sense of themselves, their connection to others, and their connection to the world as a whole.

Unitarian Universalist Religious Education is grounded in the Seven UU Principles. These principles are used to promote a sense of identity, spiritual growth, tolerance, social justice, and responsibility.

The non-dogmatic teachings of Unitarian Universalism encourage individuals to seek their own truths. Our religious education program acknowledges the responsibility and capacity of individuals to make informed decisions about what is true. We hope to provide an environment in which ideas are freely explored and a strong sense of community is formed.


The inherent worth and dignity of every person
We promise to respect all people through our words and actions.

Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
We promise to treat all people fairly and with kindness.

Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
We promise to welcome one another, and to learn together.

A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
We promise to encourage each person's search for what is right and true in life

The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
We promise to listen to our inner voice and to the hopes and concerns of others.

The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
We promise to work together to make the world a better place for all.

Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
We promise to care for the Earth, its creatures and our surroundings.
