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 a 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 empower ourselves to search for new truths
  • Because here we nurture our children’s enthusiasms 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
