As Unitarian Universalists, we invite all people to join us with authenticity and vulnerability. We live together in covenant, a sacred bond, to support each other as we search for spiritual growth, celebrate diversity, and nurture our minds, bodies, and spirits so we are energized to do the work of creating a more justice, loving and accepting world for all.
BridgesUU is a modern approach to the Unitarian Universalist movement centered in covenantal relationships between local communities and congregations and partners.
We envision a world that recognizes our interconnectedness as but one part of the web of all existence that transcends time and space.
Our Mission is to spread the good news of Unitarian Universalism that celebrates the oneness of and universal dignity of our planet and all life upon it.
As a community we are centered in what is commonly known as the 7th Principle of Unitarian Universalism. Drawing upon the promotion and affirmation for the respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are apart. With this principle as our foundation, we center our relationships with our planet, humanity and all other life to our own spiritual growth.
Building on the model of Liberation Theology, we are focused on centering the marginalized among us. We aim to give voice to those who have been silenced because of their gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, ability, age or economic status. We will be paying particular attention to and looking to provide services to children, youth and young adults who are members of any of these marginalized communities.
We will provide opportunities for UU and other faith communities and congregations to develop deeper relationships and connections through collaboration, sharing of resources and programming, leadership development, justice training, youth and young adult outreach and other ministerial and administrative services.
