We, as Unitarian Universalists, affirm and promote seven principles, including the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equity and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregation. It is easy to agree to affirm and promote these principles. After all, they just make good sense. But can we truly have compassion if we don’t understand what is calling for that compassion? Can we be even more affirming of the dignity of every person when we are conscious of their lived experiences? Join us Sunday as Interweave and the Worship Committee provide encouragement to spiritual growth, calling for compassion in our human relations, specifically relations with the trans* community.
UUCH’s Interweave is an Outreach Group for self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) persons. Together with our friends and allies we are dedicated to the spiritual, political, and social well-being of UUs who are confronting oppression associated with their LGBTQ status. We follow the UUA’s Interweave lead and facilitate the celebration of the culture and lives of our members.
