Rev. Leonetta Bugleisi

WA: Liz Firek

“Do All You Can”

 

Remember that cliche, ‘do as I say not as I do”?  Well what we say often creates an intention for what we do.  The Covenant Team: Terry Chinn, Sue Kelly, Bob Duman & Carrie Kempf and Rev. Leonetta includes each of you in the continued process of co-creating an ORGANIC living Covenant for the CUUB congregation.  This user-friendly Covenant will be symbolized by a tree that has leaves that change with the seasons, although the strong bark and branches hold the identity and integrity of the tree steady through all seasons.

7 GUIDING PRINCIPLES

What do UUs Believe?

We're glad you asked! We affirm and promote seven principles which we hold as strong values.  Drawn from sources as diverse as science, poetry, nature, scripture, and personal experience, these principles are our shared moral compass.

1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.​

Inspiration from Everywhere and Anywhere

We recognize the diversity of our spiritual paths and beliefs, and offer a welcoming home for modern individuals and families who may struggle with singular dogma. We are united by shared values, not by creed.  We affirm and honor each individual's spiritual exploration.

Deeds, Not Creeds

Our legacy of "deeds not creeds" calls us to harness love's power to stop oppression and make the world a better place.  Whether that means spreading kindness in our daily lives, planting a garden with our children, grassroots community organizing, or interfaith advocacy, marches, and prayer vigils, Unitarian Universalists strive to put our faith into action.

Check out the latest events here.

We'd love to meet you this Sunday @10:30am.
And relax, you can wear jeans, or your pajamas, if you're meeting on Zoom!
