Sources of Our Living Tradition and Faith

Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Fullerton
 
 
Sources of Our Living Tradition and Faith
 
The living tradition which we share 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 inspires 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
 
 
                               
  
These sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.
