Our mission as the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is to build a liberal religious community of love and justice, enriched by diversity, that nurtures spirituality and inspires us to act on our beliefs.
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart. Together, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door: we join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been before.
On Diversity and Inclusiveness:
We, the congregation of Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, understand that systems of power, privilege, and oppression have historically created barriers for persons and groups with particular identities, ages, abilities, and histories. We pledge to work to replace such barriers with ever-widening circles of understanding, solidarity, mutual respect, and love. We cherish the diversity of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual and affectational orientations, gender identity and expression, financial means, education, and political and religious perspectives. We strive to be a congregation that truly welcomes all persons and commit to structuring congregational life in ways that empower and enhance participation by all, and where all feel welcome.
We gather as a caring community, seeking life’s deeper meanings; We value diversity and affirm the worth of all living things; We strive to speak truth in love, to act for justice, to grow in spirit, and to care for the earth; We celebrate, with open hearts and minds, the creative power that sustains and transforms us.
Central to the Unitarian Universalist religion is respect for each person’s quest for truth, value and religious understanding. We hold our beliefs as individuals, coming together in communities of faith to learn, to celebrate, to work for justice, to comfort and be comforted, and to ensure the religious education of our children.
