How is it that Unitarian Univeralists are a people of deep faith?


The wise person understands the Unitarian Univeralist covenant and practices it diligently.
The average person likes the fellowship of UU and attends now and again.
The foolish person has learned about the Unitarian Univeralist covenant and laughs.

Without laughter, the UU covenant would not be what it is.
More than anything, Unitarian Univeralists do not take themselves seriously but instead respect and encourage the free and responsible search for Truth and meaning.

Having encouraged the search, UUs don't know where they are headed.
Having encouraged the search, UUs often times feel lost.
Having encouraged the search, UUs never celebrate the arrival.
Having encouraged the search, UUs never expect to achieve.
Having encouraged the search, UUs teach the importance of the journey and are skeptical about the destination.
Having encouraged the search, UUs are people of deep and abiding faith but have no answers.
Having encourged the search, UUs rest in their respect for the interdependent web of all existence which is beyond understanding.
