What is Unitarian Universalism?
We are a diverse and highly individualistic group. Basically, though, Unitarian Universalism (UU) is a religion centered upon an open ended quest for meaning in life and a shared effort to put our best values into practice in our daily affairs. Since UU has no creed or doctrinal barrier, it makes no distinction of race or nationality, but welcomes with open doors all persons who are committed to the search for truth and to the service of the highest they know.
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is a religious organization that combines two traditions: The Universalists who organized in 1793 and the Unitarians who organized in 1825. They merged in 1961 to form the UUA which serves more than 1,200 congregations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and overseas. Information about Unitarian Universalism and the activities of the denomination can be found on the website www.uua.org.
