A Religious Community

fRee Minds!

Our 7 Principles & 6 Sources

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to 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.

The living tradition which we share 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.

Grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith, we are inspired to deepen our understanding and expand our vision. As free congregations we enter into this covenant, promising to one another our mutual trust and support.

"Beyond Belief", Secular AA group meets at First UU on Mondays at 6:30 pm.

We have two great plays this summer and are looking for audience sponsors. We are trying to get people out to see theatre who might not otherwise attend (this certainly doesn't apply to many of your members as they are our faithful attenders!). I would like to invite the UU to be an audience sponsor. What this means is simply choosing a date for the play that will be "your night" and then signing up UU members to attend for FREE! You can have up to 50 people attend. 

We will have a special talk back with the cast after the play (they are both just a little over an hour long) for our audience sponsors. I've attached the information. If you feel you aren't the correct person to organize this, would you forward to the correct person and let me know who that is? 

Thanks so much!

​​​Free Same Sex Marriages Offered Here!

One church in Lubbock has stepped forward and announced today that it will provide marriages to same-sex couples, and do so free of charge.  First Unitarian Universalist Church of Lubbock says that they believe in justice, equity and compassion in human relations, and are called to stand on the side of love as a part of their faith.  

The First Unitarian Church is a diverse congregation that is home to members from many faith traditions. 

Church President, Gay Hedges, says that “Our covenant calls for us to respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  The recent ruling by the Supreme Court regarding same-sex marriage gives us an opportunity, an obligation even, to live our values.” 

The church, located at the corner of 42nd and Canton, has long been a diverse religious community. Founded in 1954, the First Unitarian Universalist Church is home to members from diverse religious backgrounds including Christian, Buddhist, Humanist, and Atheists.  They say their goal is to work together and find ways to achieve spiritual growth both in spite of and because of their differences. 

“We want to announce to our congregation and the wider community that, no matter who you are, no matter what definitions you give yourself or what designations others give you, here you are welcome.  We stand on the side of love and will offer same sex marriage at our church.”

They will be offering same-sex marriages, including the venue and minister, free of charge, by calling the church office at 806-799-1617.

Grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith, we are inspired to deepen our understanding and expand our vision. As free congregations we enter into this covenant, promising to one another our mutual trust and support.
