Sorry, in the second paragraph, I meant to say "We share this acceptance of multiple paths to the divine/truth/reality (the spirit of universalism) with many other paths, including mystical traditions from most world religions (Sufism, Advaita Vedanta, Druze, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and countless others)."

Hi, John, sorry for the delayed response. Unitarian Universalism is a faith based not on a common creed, but rather on a set of common principles. We hold uphold each individual's right to accept or not accept any dogma, cherishing their doubt as a tool to sort through their personal beliefs in order to find that sacred balance between reason and faith that works for them. Here's a quick overview of the seven "principles" our congregations generally agree on:http://www.uua.org/beliefs/principles/index.shtml

UU acknowledge six types of sources, which you can see below the principles at the URL above. We accept multiple paths to the divine/truth/reality (the spirit of universalism) with many other paths, including mystical traditions from most world religions (Sufism, Advaita Vedanta, Druze, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and countless others). All of these traditions, some of which affirm unitarianism or are called "unitarianism" in their native languages, inspire me profoundly.

It is true that some find Unitarian Universalism lacking because it does not spoon-feed spiritual teachings or practices to its members but rather trusts us to explore our spirituality responsibly on our own. My exploration takes me deep into the teachings of many faiths, and my UU community upholds my personal experience of the Divine as sacred whether I find it in a Catholic cathedral, a Hindu temple, a serene lake, or a science symposium. Some of my fellow UUs may call something God that I don't call God -- and many are even self-proclaimed atheists, as I once was -- but this is fine with me, as their experience of reality is just as valid as mine, a result of their personal experiences. The important thing is that we all share a community that supports our exploration, without which I would be constantly trying to find new faith communities to call home, unable to establish long-lasting relationships. Our UU community also allows us to work together toward the common good in many ways that we regularly agree on through the democratic process, proving that we need not think alike to love alike. In other words, love is more powerful than any divisions we construct between each other.

I'm sorry to hear that this site has been so slow lately. I love the concepts, even if the execution is a work-in-progress (quite the same as my attitude toward my UU faith).

I'll certainly post the above overview in a discussion forum as well (at some point) in case anyone else is interested!

Hi, John. I'm curious -- Do you know how this project is going? Are there any plans to pick it up again at any point? I see that there's been a significant drop in activity since the beginning of last year, which is disheartening but understandable considering the ambitiousness of it.

Just so you know, I'm a Unitarian Universalist and a student of many world spiritual teachers, and I am a professional software tester, so this project appeals to me for many reasons. :)

Pope Francis’s Deeper Insight

 The Robert Fritz NewsletterDecember 2015 Pope Francis’s Deeper Insight  In Kenya last week, Pope Francis asked a stadium of young people to stand up and hold hands.  A simple gesture.  But the deeper message was about the destructive force of tribalism and the generative force of alignment with all of humanity. Historically, Kenya has had trouble with tribalism as recently as less than 10 years ago.  But tribalism is not limited to the developing world.  It is a world predicament. One of the…See More
