We are a warm,
caring religious community that appreciates diversity, values
intellectual curiosity, knows how to have fun, and seeks to honour
and preserve the world and all its inhabitants. At the UFL, we come as
we are and we are all welcome.
We gather for Sunday Services. We enjoy fellowship through lively
conversation. We act on our U*U principles. We share stories of summer
at our annual Fall In Gathering Service. We dance the night away. We
tend our garden.
Our Sunday service
meets year-round at 10:45am and is central to our religious life. We
draw on a variety of sources and traditions, and address themes ranging
from social concerns to spiritual growth. Typically our services include
music, congregational singing, spoken and silent meditation, the sharing of
joys and concerns, a moment of wonder for our children, and a sermon.
Our 7 Principles
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 congregation;
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.
