If you don't find what you are looking for, choose again.
Osho says, "Truth is one, but the doors to find it can be many. And if you become attached to the door itself, you will stop at the door. Then the door of truth will never open for you."
Osho's statement reminds me of the bar card which says, "If you think you know what you are talking about you are full of shit."
Unitarian Universalists know that truth does not reside in a creed or a book or a tradition. These things can point to the truth, but they are not the truth. That's why UUs covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
Many UUs, if not most, were raised in different faiths and in searching in UU, they did not lose their faith but someone else's. They are searching for their own, maybe for the first time in their lives.
Unitarian Univeralism is a faith of second chances. Unitarian Univeralism supports our search wherever it may take us and if we wind up going down a blind alley which becomes a dead end, UU encourages us to choose again.
