The Unitarian Church of Norfolk is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (LINK). Our beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. Our shared covenant (our seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”
Although Unitarianism and Universalism began as mainline Christian traditions, this responsible search has led us to an inclusive spirituality drawn from six sources: from scriptural wisdom to personal experience to modern day heroes.
Members of Unitarian Universalist congregations have formed personal theologies based on their own backgrounds, social situations, and understandings of the world. We think for ourselves, and reflect together, about important questions:
Here are some reflections on the “big questions” —
- The existence of a Higher Power ?
- Why does Life exist? What happens when we die? Life and Death
- Are some books, scrolls or spoken traditions considered Sacred Texts?
- Where do we find Inspiration and Guidance?
- What do we think about Prayer and Spiritual Practices?
We are united in our broad and inclusive outlook, and in our values, as expressed in our seven Principles. We are united in shared experience: our open and stirring worship services, religious education, and rites of passage; our work for social justice; our quest to include the marginalized; our expressions of love.
