Ten Good Reasons for Joining a UU Congregation*

  • Because here we join with open hearts and minds to worship together, seeking what is sacred among us.
  • Because here we are 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 we 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.
