  1. When we reflect on the first principle of UU, the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and then look at the rising suicide rates in the United States it makes one wonder about the spiritual poverty in our society. It would seem that Unitarian Univeralism has a life saving message and covenant to offer people that might give them hope and lift them from despair.
