What is the mission of Unitarian Univeralism: A Way Of Life ministries?

The mission of Unitarian Universalism: A Way Of Life ministries is to sanctify the world by facilitating the development of sainthood among its members through engagement in a covenantal relationship based on UU's seven principles.
Sainthood is holiness. Sainthood has many components of holiness. The components of sainthood are honesty, empathy (sometimes called compassion), kindness, awareness, peace, and joy. The overriding component of sainthood is the abiding faith in Spirit and the eradication of the ego.
Sainthood is a state of being described as "awakened" or some use the word "enlightened". The saint has tuned into their innate divinity which is experienced as Oneness with the All. The saint has removed the blocks and obstacles to their awareness of Love's presence which is our natural inheritance. The saint is realized, no longer sleep walking through the ego plane.
Unitarian Univeralism helps people achieve sainthood by providing an opportunity for participation in a covenant to affirm and promote seven basic principles the most important of which is the love of the interdependent web in which we all exist and participate sometimes with awareness and most often without awareness because we think our separation as egos from the interdependent web is real. Unitarian Universalism encourages us to covenant together to reflect on the error of our belief in the separation and to remind us of our dependence on the ground of our being.
The calling of embarking on a life as a participant in, and contributor to UUAWOL ministries, is challenging. All are called but few listen and respond. How about you? Will you join the UUAWOL ministry?

  2. Great article! Should be widely disseminated. I have never heard the mission of the church put this way before. Do you ever do consulting work?
