7 Principles Discussion Group Next Week! (July 19th)

I’m sure you’ve heard someone ask, or maybe thought to yourself: “We’re Unitarian Universalists. So what exactly do we believe?” I’ve wondered many times about the fact that all us all hold usually different beliefs, so what is it that brings us together to worship under one roof on Sundays?

I believe one underlying foundation for our community of faith are the Seven Principles written into the bylaws of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). Rev. Barbara Wells ten Hove explains, “The Principles are not dogma or doctrine, but rather a guide for those of us who choose to join and participate in Unitarian Universalist religious communities.”

So… Let’s talk about them! We’ll be starting with Number 1: “The inherent worth and dignity of every person.” The inaugural Young Souls 7 Principles Discussion Group is happening next Wednesday in Meridian Hill Park; meet at the Joan of Arc statue at 6:30 PM. Feel free to bring snacks, and we’ll dig into some deep conversations about the first principle. RSVP on Facebook here. Or simply send me an email back saying who you are and if you’re coming. This will help determine how l the amount of blankets and snacks to bring.

Thanks all, and I’ll look forward to seeing you there!
