Building Your Own Theology
January 21, 2018
Rev. Michelle Collins
Unitarian Universalism’s 4th principle states that we affirm “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning” for each of us. It is a fundamental part of our faith, and I expect a part that drew many of us here.
Our own truths matter, and there isn’t a creed or belief system that UUism compels us to agree to. To me, it’s one of the most beautiful things about our faith. We’ll explore what it means today. (And if you’re curious to go deeper with this, join the Building Your Own Theology class that I’ll be co-leading with UUSD leader Mac Goekler starting on January 15.)
Who We Are
We are brave, curious, compassionate thinkers and doers. Diverse in faith, ethnicity, history, and spirituality, we are building a welcoming community that changes lives.
What We Are Doing
Standing for love, justice, and peace, we gather for worship, learning, programs, events, and more.

Sharing Our Stories
Each of us at UUSD has a different story to tell about how we found a spiritual home here. A few of us are life-long UUs but most are not, having come from a variety of other religious backgrounds or from no particular place of faith. Whatever our journey, sharing the stories of the paths we took helps connect us to each other and to the shared journey we are now making.
