Unitarian Universalists consider racism
TWIN FALLS — Unitarian Universalist beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed but do have a shared covenant of seven principles that support our free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Our liberal traditions have led us to embrace diverse teachings from eastern and western religions and philosophies. More recently, a movement has begun to explore the need for an eighth principle.
Our first principle is to respect the inherent worth and dignity of every human. However, the eighth principle came from a feeling among our members that we need something to renew our commitment to fighting racism, to hold ourselves accountable and to fulfill the potential of our existing principles. Don Morishita will speak on the topic of racism in today’s world and what we can do about it at the Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at the Vendor Blender and Event Center, 588 Addison Ave. W. near County West, Twin Falls.
Unitarian Universalism honors the differing paths individuals travel. Congregations are places where people celebrate, support and challenge one another as they continue on their spiritual journeys. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote: the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another. Newcomers of all religious paths, or none at all, are always welcome. Child care is available. The center is handicapped-accessible. Parking is in the rear of the building.
