3rd Principle: Acceptance of One Another and Encouragement to Spiritual Growth in Our Congregations

In other words, “We’re free to learn together.”

As Unitarian Universalists we affirm and promote 7 Principles and the sources of faith from which they are drawn. They represent the backbone of the religious community in which we participate.

Examples of the 3rd Principle in Action

  • The Leap of Faith initiative establishes mentoring relationships between selected congregations to promote community growth and congregational development.
     
  • Forward Through the Ages (FORTH) is a multi-year stewardship development program designed to support a congregation’s mission while deepening its commitment to a clear vision of the future.

Worship

Chalica is a week-long celebration of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. Each day, a chalice is lit and the day is spent reflecting on the meaning of that day’s principle and doing a good deed that honors that principle.

Curricula

  • The Tapestry of Faith children’s curriculum Love Surrounds Us explores all the Principles in the context of Beloved Community of family/home, school, neighborhood. Session 6 focuses on the third Principle, and allows children to learn and demonstrate acceptance and compassion to everyone through story, art, games, and meditation.
