Our Unitarian Universalist principles call us to affirm the commonality and connectedness of all people. At the same time, thanks to a combination of our upbringing, identities, and experiences, each individual person is conditioned to see the world from a particular perspective. So how much do we really have in common? And what happens when differing cultures and expectations clash?
More Americans than ever are successfully living alone. The stigma of not being married has been reduced by the bold and, in many cases, happy lives of people setting out on their own. At the same time increasing numbers of people are marrying across ethnic, religious and socio-economic groups. How do we help each other break away from the ways we are told we “should live”, and follow our hearts?
“We believe…” is how Unitarian Universalist congregations and members begin each principle. Join the Coming of Age youth for this multigenerational service where they will express their beliefs and be affirmed by the congregation during this sacred rite of passage.
This service will be lead by the youth and their advisors Chris McLaughlin and Kurt Ahrens.
