Ten Good Reasons for Joining a Unitarian Universalist Congregation
- Because here we join with open hearts and minds to worship together, seeking what is sacred among us.
- Because here we are part of a long, liberal tradition of reason and tolerance, of hope and liberation.
- Because here we honor our Jewish and Christian roots, and also reach out to know the great truths found in other religious expressions.
- Because here we acknowledge that revelation is never sealed and we empower ourselves to search for new truths.
- Because here we nurture our children’s enthusiasm and encourage their questions.
- Because here we welcome diverse people and views.
- Because here we join our strength with others to create a more just society.
- Because here we respect the whole self–mind, body and spirit working together.
- Because here we encourage each other to be true to ourselves.
- Because here we build a supportive community that eases our loneliness and opens our hearts.
