In his “Our
Calling” column in the March/April issue, President William
G. Sinkford wrote, “I always encourage people to work on their elevator
speech, what you’d say when you’re going from the sixth floor
to the lobby and somebody asks you, ‘What’s a Unitarian Universalist?’”
We invite your responses for this column; write to “Reflections,”
UU World, 25 Beacon Street, Boston MA 02108.
We believe that your spiritual life is personal—a relationship
between the individual and deity, however you define it. Rather than choose
your path for you, we provide a safe place for you to discover and pursue
your own path.
South Valley Unitarian Universalist Society
Salt Lake City, Utah
Unitarian Universalism is a religion for people who are trying to live
a good human life, regardless of their religious beliefs. Unitarian Universalism
welcomes people of all different beliefs, encourages us to seek our own
spiritual truths, and believes in a balance of—and a respect for—both
reason and emotion.
First Unitarian Universalist Church
Unitarian Universalists believe in the Inner God—the god of human
responsibility and human creativity, the god of love, compassion, and
empathy. This belief arises from the heritage bequeathed by the two founding
denominations now joined.
