Who We Are

Methow UnitarianWe are a supportive community of individuals with a common interest in a free search for truth and meaning in a very diverse, often confusing and ever-evolving world.
  
Many of us have been disappointed by the religions or belief systems we grew up with and thus appreciate a community that encourages individuals to freely explore options and to consciously choose a path that is most meaningful to them.

We do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed.  We keep our minds open to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places and to the variety of answers that have unfolded over time with respect to life, death, the world, and its mysteries.  We believe people should be encouraged to think for themselves about these matters and to use their personal life experiences and their heart as they search for understanding of that mystery that pervades our existence.

We welcome individuals of all races, ages, sexual orientation, abilities, culture, and religious background.
 
We do believe in these Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism:

  • the inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth
  • a free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are apart
