Unitarian Universalists are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, but united in peace, understanding, and transformative love.
For many Unitarian Universalists (UUs), Christianity provides insight and guidance. One of the shared sources of our faith is "Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves."
Unitarianism and Universalism both have Christian roots. The Bible and its many interpretations have largely shaped our history. We celebrate Christmas and Easter. Religiously liberal Christians can be at home in our diverse and vibrant faith. Within our diverse movement, some Unitarian Universalist congregations regularly refer to the New Testament in worship, some observe Good Friday and All Souls Day, and some celebrate Communion. All of our congregations welcome people with Christian backgrounds and beliefs.
As Rev. Bruce Southworth writes, "Jesus' message remains strong in our efforts to create a beloved community here on earth, impelling us to witness to the injustices of this time." And Rev. Anita Farber-Robertson has said, "Jesus gives us the strength to fight, the courage to love, and hearts that do not give up on anyone."
