Canon Unitarian Universalist Church
Maybe you’re uncomfortable with the idea of God, or at least someone else’s idea of God. Maybe you yearn for a loving, spiritual community where you can be inspired and encouraged as you search for your own truth and meaning. This is a church, you ask? Welcome to Unitarian Universalism!
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that encompasses many faith traditions. Unitarian Universalists (or UUs) include people who identify as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists, and others. As there is no official Unitarian Universalist creed, Unitarian Universalists are free to search for truth on many paths. To quote the Rev. Marta Flanagan, "We uphold the free search for truth. We will not be bound by a statement of belief. We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed. We say ours is a non-creedal religion. Ours is a free faith." Although we uphold shared principles, individual Unitarian Universalists have varied beliefs about everything from scripture ,to rituals, to God.
A hallmark of UUism is the freedom which it allows individuals to develop their own unique understanding of and relationship to God. The essential UU belief underlying these differences is that God—or whatever one chooses to call the spirit of life—is a loving, hopeful, positive force.
