About Unitarian Universalism

See Welcome from the Unitarian Universalist Association's Web site for more information.

Unitarianism and Universalism were two separate faiths which merged in 1961. Unitarian Universalism is a liberal non-creedal faith dedicated to the encouragement of the individual¹s search for truth and meaning in life.

Unitarian Universalism is based on 7 principles:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in the congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within the congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all
  • And respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which all are a part.

Many well known persons have been associated with Unitarian Universalism, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Frank Lloyd Wright, Clara Barton, Adlai Stevenson II, Charles Darwin, Dorothea Dix and Millard Fillmore

St. Lawrence University, nearby in Canton, New York, had a theological school for the training of Universalist ministers until the 1960s. Many of All Souls' ministers were graduates of the theological school.
