Elevator speeches



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.

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.

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.
