How do the Seven Principles of UU work together to create a faith?

“The seven parts do not stand alone. They function in concert to convey the wholeness of religious understanding.” 

P.x Ellen Brandenburg, ed. The Seven Principles In Word and Worship

UU is a covenantal religion based on seven principles. The seven principles can be studied individually, but they also must be studied as a whole recognizing the the parts interact in a dynamic way to create an understanding greater than just a sum of the parts.

What do you think of this idea?

  1. The idea of Unitarian Univeralism being a covenantal religion is very powerful and inspiring. The idea that the covenant is based on affirmation and promotion of seven principles really gives focus to the mission. The ministry here is very significant and gratitude floods my heart and mind for your uplifting work.
