Philosophy and Mission
Unitarian Universalism is a faith in manifold paths to truth and higher spiritual ground. We require no conformity to a creed but are guided by seven principles.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Topeka will be a spiritual home and a beacon of liberal religious expression in Topeka.
To encourage and support personal religious journeys and ethical living by providing a community that consistently embraces and applies the Unitarian Universalist Principles.
- Enhance the experience of spirituality;
- Facilitate the connection of individuals;
- Provide a medium in which people can make a helpful connection between the spiritual and material worlds;
- Observe, assist and celebrate transitions;
- Foster community outreach as an extension of personal religious journeys;
- Provide a vehicle for liberal religious and ethical education, particularly for youth; and
- Offer its members a sacred space and zone of comfort.
When a person becomes attuned to sources of inspiration and enabled by a faith in the power of love, that person also becomes sensitized to the injustices faced my many in our community and around the world. Those injustices diminish a person's potential and breed poor coping strategies. UU has a long tradition of service toward greater social justice for people oppressed by overt and subtle inequities. The Fellowship provides ways for interested participants to make a difference in the struggle for social justice. For more information, e-mail the Social Justice Chair.
