About Unitarian Universalism
Wesleyan's Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry
Although Unitarian Universalism (UU) is celebrated in many different ways by its diverse number of congregations and individual congregants, there are seven principles that are affirmed and promoted by all Unitarian Universalist congregations, fellowships, and communities:
- 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 congregations;
- 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.
Although Unitarian Universalists do not share a creed, the members of UU communities are united by shared recognition of the importance of an individual's own spiritual journey. The Wesleyan University Unitarian Universalist Campus Ministry is a new organization that seeks to create a visible UU spiritual/religious/humanist campus community. We hold worship and are also involved in community service and social justice projects that engage with the seven UU principles. All (UU or not) are welcome!
