UU Seven Principles, 4th Principle, A Free and Responsible Search for Truth and Meaning - Part
by Rev. D. Michael Smith
So often, Unitarian Universalists are diminished mainly by how our faith is defined by others, and we often buy into such definitions. That is not something that UUs want, says Rev. Smith, so we need to examine what our history and our Principles say for some guidance. Our fourth Principle says that we agree to a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” That is a provocative phrase, one which Rev. Smith will explore.
