UU…eh?

June 28, 2011

 

Ah, well, it’s been quite a week, here…or there, rather. I am just about as worn out as one can possibly be but I’m happy. To go in to too much detail would, well, be just that, but I will say that it was quite a life affirming, energizing, workshop filled conference with old and new friends, familiar routine and additional joys and challenges of being at GA with a three year old and gestating another.

I won’t bore all of my non-UU friends with my silliness; I just wanted to come in for a landing and announce my return to the fabulous world of blogging. Perhaps I’ll do a run down of cool books from the UUA bookstore and Skinner , later this week.

Oh and just for kicks, because many of you may be wondering what the heck Unitarian Universalism actually is, it’s somewhere between a non-denominational and multi-denominational conglomerate of faithful searching, drawing on Judeo-Christian values, eastern and western philosophies and an unending commitment to passion, compassion and justice. Or, for the list-oriented people, it follows seven pretty easy principles:

  • 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.

Ok, it’s much harder to get down off of this little soap box when one is pregnant. Huff, hurumph, ouch.

    Welcome back!

    It’s harder to do everything when you’re pregnant, isn’t it? =o)

    I was a UU for awhile and still like the way they approach life.

    Great sounding ideals, but too bad there are so many strong ideologies in conflict throughout the world. It’s tough to bring everyone together.
