Welcome to the Dorothea Dix UU Community

The Seven Core Principles of Unitarian-Universalism

Unitarian-Universalism  is a creed-free religion founded with the understanding that individuals can rely on their own reasoning and inner wisdom in the seeking of religious truth.   The discovery of truth is an ongoing and open journey whose seekers can find answers and pose questions in the realms of history, poetry, literature and music; in new and unexplored places; as well as in the exploration of a variety of well-established traditions including Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Wicca and Taoism, to name a few.  We are respectful of each individual’s personal journey, while together we join to affirm and promote:

1) The inherent worth and dignity of every person

2) Justice, equity and compassion in human relations

3) Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations

4) A free and responsible search for truth and meaning

5) The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large

6) The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all

7) Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part

We are part of a two larger denominations, including the national Unitarian Universalist Association and the local Joseph Priestly District.  As a congregation, we seek diversity, compassion, service to the greater community, and joyous celebration.  Come as you are and be welcomed!
