There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:
Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
Wisdom from the world's religions which inspire us in our ethical and spiritual life;
Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
Where and When Do We Meet?
We are a lay led congregation that meets at 10 a.m. on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. Services are held at the Lakeway Learning Center and last approximately one hour with food and fellowship afterward. We welcome everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or gender expression.
Our congregation started the first Annual Prairie Wind Culture Festival in 2004 and although the Festival has become its own entity, many of our members continue to help coordinate the Festival and our congregation makes a sizeable monetary donation to help support the Festival each year.
Members of our congregation, including our youth group, volunteer at the Soup Kitchen, Habitat for Humanities, AVA Community Art Center. They participate in Earth Week activities, the Donkey Creek Task Force and various other community organizations and events.
