ALONG THE PRINCIPLED PATH 

Shared by Dan Teslow 

  • Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote seven Principles, which we hold as strong values and moral guides. We also draw from many historical traditions and sources of wisdom for old and new insights along our individual paths and community journeys.
  • We live out these Principles within a “living tradition” of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from Six Sources as diverse as science, poetry, scripture, and personal experience
  • What effects do you believe Judeo-Christian Scriptures have had on the development of our Faith? How have they influenced your personal concepts of love or the nature of your spirituality?  These questions may begin reflection on the:
Fourth Source of Unitarian Universalism*:  
Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
 
The Hebrew Bible proclaims:
  • “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one” ( Deut. 6:4)
  • “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18)
The New Testament concurs:
  • “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31
After quoting Lev. 19:18,  Paul wrote that
  • “Love is the fulfilling of the law” (Rom. 13:10).
At the “Last Supper”, Jesus symbolically shared himself and his deep love for his Friends and Disciples. Millennia later, billions find comfort in this ritual of sharing.
Perhaps, “All We Need is Love”

===============

 * Unitarian Universalism is a highly individualistic religion with no dogma concerning the spiritual nature of the world. As such, different UUs can have radically different ideas concerning the nature of the divine as well as ethical decisions.

As varied as the beliefs are, there are seven principles which members of the UU religious community agree upon. These are the foundations of the organization and which they promote.
 
They do not constitute a Catechism. We have no doctrinal manuals; questions followed by answers to be memorized. UU’s often prefer unanswered questions over unquestioned answers. Our shared Principles guide us along our individual sacred journeys and help us remain mindful of what is sacred to others.
 
Unitarian Universalist Congregations together affirm and promote Seven Principles as a Covenant of Community, which grew out of the ongoing dialogues within our communities and were affirmed democratically.
