“OUR CHURCH TEACHES BY WHAT IT SAYS, YES, BUT ALSO BY WHAT IT DOES”
-Rev. Richard Gilbert, Unitarian Universalist Minister, The Prophetic Imperative
The Seventh Principle of Unitarian Universalism calls us to affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. To this end, UU’s are often very engaged in social concerns in their local and global communities. Whether it is donating to international hunger efforts, volunteering with a local organization, writing letters about social justice issues, or helping with a need identified within our fellowship, social concerns is a vital part of our identity as Unitarian Universalists.
