Rites of Passage
Here at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Stamford, we foster spiritual growth both individually and in community. We invite people to walk together with us in the spirit of love to transform ourselves and the world around us.
Our Unitarian Universalist Principles
Unitarian Universalist congregations together affirm and promote seven Principles that grew out of the grassroots of our communities, were affirmed democratically, and are part of who we are.We hold the Principles as strong values and moral teachings. As 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.”
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.
