The living tradition, which we share, draws from many sources:

  • Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces that create and uphold life.
  • Words and deeds of prophetic women and men, which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.
  • Wisdom from the world's religions, which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.
  • Jewish and Christian teachings, which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Humanist teachings, which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
  • Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions, which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Excerpts from "The future: no going back" written by Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, President, Unitarian-Universalist Association

The Fall 2020 edition of UU World, our denomination's magazine, has a LOT of wonderful articles in this issue, and here are some particularly timely and thoughtful highlights from Rev. Frederick-Gray:


"Models of religious life steeped in individualism, exceptionalism, scarcity and competition will not meet this moment."

"The science of the coronavirus reminds us that we are fundamentally interconnected, that our actions and ways of being impact the health and well-being of others."

"...what has become abundantly clear in this crisis is that we cannot go back. The deadly effects of what was considered normal, or business as usual, are undeniable."


"Our democracy is under direct attack - and has been for a long time. What this means is that we ALL need to be ALL IN for systemic change that puts PEOPLE first, that sees racism, xenophobia, poverty, ableism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, voter suppression, and climate destruction as one issue - a disease we must all organize to address together. So much is on the line."
