The Journey of Self-Acceptance

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Gautama Buddha
I agree with Buddha, but I’ve also found self-acceptance to be elusive, especially when I think of how I don’t fit into expected norms. And I know I’m not the only one. Join me for some inspiration as I explore the journey of self-acceptance.

What people are saying

Why am I a member of Allen Avenue UU Church?  It can best be summarized in two words: community and beliefs.   I have been part of various church communities all of my life.  As my religious beliefs changed I had trouble getting up each Sunday and reciting things I no longer believed in.  Then I discovered Unitarian Universalism where we say we believe in Love, Truth, Helping Others, and the Sanctity of Life. That I can agree with.
