Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma.
Our congregations are places where we gather to nurture our spirits and put our faith into action by working toward social justice in our communities and the wider world. There is no formal conversion process, so becoming a Unitarian Universalist (UU) is simply a matter of self-identification.

This Sunday Rev. Shayna Appel and the congregation will be exploring the question of free speech and the special challenges this principle poses for people of faith. The First Amendment of our nation’s constitution seeks to protect free speech, but it does nothing to flesh out what, exactly, free speech is and what, if any, limitations there are to the concept. Furthermore, history paints a mixed medium portrait with respect to whose speech ultimately winds up getting protected. As people called to pay special attention to those at society’s margins, how do we make sense of, and what are we called to, in response to the current socio-political climate in America?
