We are a spiritual community in which we have a large variety of people speak to us as a congregation about matters that pertain to one of our 7 Unitarian Universalist Principles.  Today we came together as a group and discussed our own journey that lead us to this congregation in the first place.  

We all seek to belong to a community that is bigger than ourselves.  Some people to talk with, some people to lean on, some people to discuss the great and small questions about how we should live to be our ideal selves.  This is a community of values.  We believe in the loving teachings of Jesus, but we do so without the burden of a doctrine that requires belief in one or another particular miracles.  We believer that the miracles are not the important part of the biblical story.  We explore the nature of god through reverence, not through magic.

If you are seeking a religious home but are wary of religious charlatans, we might be the place for you.  We question, we often doubt.  But, we are open and accepting you while you are on your spiritual journey.

Cherish your doubts, for doubt is the attendant of truth.

Doubt is the key to the door of knowledge; it is the servant of discovery.

A belief which may not be questioned binds us to error, for there is incompleteness and imperfection in every belief.

Doubt is the touchstone of truth; it is an acid which eats away the false.

Let no one fear the truth, that doubt may consume it; for doubt is a testing of belief.

The truth stands boldly and unafraid; it is not shaken by the testing:

For truth, if it be truth, arises from each testing stronger, more secure.

Those that would silence doubt are filled with fear; their houses are built on shifting sands.

But those who fear not doubt, and know its use, are founded on rock.

They shall walk in the light of growing knowledge; the work of their hands shall endure.

Therefore let us not fear doubt, but let us rejoice in its help:

It is to be the wise as a staff to the blind; doubt is the attendant of truth.

Peace,

Rick
