A Vision of Ministry Clear

Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 10 AM.

A virtual service led by Rev. Steven Protzman.

In the hymn “Wake Now My Senses” we sing of “having a vision of ministry clear”. As we prepare to begin a new chapter of UUCK’s story, we have ideas about our future, but do we have a clear vision of what we will do together? As we celebrate our annual Shared Ministries Sunday, we will reflect on how we are called to serve each other and the world. We w…

Visitors

Welcome visitors! We hope that you will find a spiritual home here and that you will be enriched in the liberal religious practice and heritage of Unitarian Universalism. The members of this church take pride in the fact that we embrace people of all races, ethnicities, ages, creeds, sexual orientations, and abilities. Unitarian Universalism is a religion that celebrates diversity of belief and is guided by seven principles and many sources of wisdom. Our congregation is where we come together in religious community to discern our values and live lives in alignment with them. Ours is a living tradition and we put our faith into action through social justice work in our communities and the wider world. In addition, we are a “Welcoming Congregation” which means we have taken part in a special program, designed by the UUA, for congregations that see a need to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people. The congregation is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Newcomers are always welcome to visit our congregation. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist is simply a matter of self-identification. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.

We invite you to explore our website, visit our congregation, and discover Unitarian Universalism!

There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
  • Wisdom from the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
  • Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
  • Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
