What is Unitarian Universalism?

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religious tradition that emerged from the merger of two different religious denominations, the Unitarians and the Universalists, in the United States in the mid-20th century. The tradition is characterized by its commitment to individual freedom of belief, the use of reason and conscience in religious matters, and a strong emphasis on social justice and equality. Unitarian Universalists do not have a creed or doctrine that all members are required to believe, but instead emphasize shared values such as respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person, the importance of justice and compassion, and the pursuit of truth. Worship services in Unitarian Universalist congregations are often led by laypeople and are diverse in nature, incorporating elements of music, meditation, and storytelling, as well as more traditional forms of preaching and prayer.
