About All Souls Unitarian Church
At All Souls we seek to include the full diversity of our broader community, including people with/from all socio-economic situations, gender identities, beliefs, ages, sexual orientations, mental and physical abilities, races and ethnicities. Therefore, we are examining all the ways in which we embody being a welcoming and inclusive community, and removing any barriers to this that currently exist that might prevent people from being fully welcomed into and involved in our church.
We are proud to be a welcoming congregation. Whatever your ethnicity, class, gender or sexual orientation, we welcome you!
We covenant and affirm the Seven Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association:
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
Embrace (Build a welcoming, inclusive church)
Engage (Get people connected)
Enlighten (Nurture the search for truth and meaning)
Empower (Ignite passion)
Vision: We are a welcoming community that celebrates its liberal religious tradition and its rich diversity, inspires authentic relationship and spiritual growth, and works for a more just, loving, and compassionate society.
