Where do we draw the line when it comes to accepting vs. boycotting such a person? As a committee, we ran into this issue while developing a recent service. In this service, we want to explore it a bit more .

What people are saying
I wanted a community of thoughtful people and especially people who were interested in community service, and I found it here in spades.
On the wall of our sanctuary there’s a statement that says ‘we celebrate diversity, encourage spiritual growth, and promote social responsibility’ and that’s really why I’m here. The message of Unitarian-Universalism is also about equality and freedom, the dignity of every human being, all things that can sound like clichés – but they really have some meaning in this church.
What I found at Allen Avenue UU Church is a community that accepts me for who I am and what I believe, yet has people with different beliefs I can learn from; there is no pressure to believe a specific creed.
At Allen Avenue UU Church I found a community of like-minded people without the religious dogma that drove me away from the church of my youth.
At Allen Avenue UU Church we have the opportunity to find out what matters most to each of us in response to life’s deepest questions and then to act on those beliefs. There’s no reason to do that alone; it’s so much more fun with others.
This community is all about peace and love and caring about other people.
Allen Avenue UU Church is a loving, supportive community that gives us wings to fly and explore our own spirituality in order to become the people we truly want to be.
