Unitarian Universalism is a 400-year-old tradition, with roots over a thousand years old and more than 100,000 current members in North America. The merger of the Unitarian and Universalist denominations in 1961 formed the Unitarian Universalist Association. Both denominations had moved away from prescriptive creeds, doctrines, and tests of faith. They emphasized individual freedom of personal belief, individual responsibility to synthesize one’s own religious philosophy and personal spiritual practices, the importance of social justice and social change, in cooperation and communion with one another.
Unitarian Universalists are distinctly individual, and what they may believe may vary from person to person, yet we are all bound together in our expectation of a better life for all people, as expressed in our seven Purposes and Principles. We seek to allow our children to question freely, while teaching them to have concern and appreciation for all people and for the natural world around us. We want our youth to learn the history of the human race with all the errors and failings, the doubts and questions, the triumphs and victories. We want our children to distinguish lasting values from current fads, to conserve what is good and beautiful, and to grow to a sense of responsibility for their own time upon this earth.
At Buckman Bridge we celebrate our historical Unitarian and Universalist roots and honor the diversity of the world by striving to be an open community focused on; celebration, worship, discussion, education, support, and social justice. Please join us in seeking to foster a climate of purposeful inclusion of all people regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or national origin.
