The Turning Point

Unitarian Universalism and WHUUF ourselves are at a turning point. For two-hundred years our denomination has been dominated by a trinity of errors: individualism, exceptionalism, and anti-authoritarianism. While this trinity may have served us well in the past it is leading to ineffectiveness and an inability to share our liberating message. We have created the iChurch where it is all about me, what UU can do for me the individual. Our future will be found in the Beloved Community, a community of justice, a religion and spirituality built on the promise of covenant. The three errors must be replaced by the three promises: generosity, pluralism, and imagination. We are at the turning point—will we turn toward the Beloved Community of the future or turn back to the iChurch.
