The Living Tradition: Article 2 and U

We call ourselves The Living Tradition. What does this mean? And for that matter what does it mean to be a Unitarian Universalist in 2023? We share many things; being covenanted communities, congregational polity, at least 7 principles and 6 sources enshrined within Article 2 of our denominational  bylaws, but this has not always been so. To be a Living Tradition means to be Alive and living things need room to breathe and grow!

You may have heard that a group called the Article 2 Study commission has been charged with exploring our principles and sources. You may also have heard that they have suggested some pretty big changes! This Sunday we will explore the heart of our faith and the histories of our principles through the centuries; seeking the Center of what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist today. After service, all are invited to a brief lunch and may join 2U leaders in listening and reflection circles as we examine the newest draft released by the Study Commission!
