7 UU principles even more concisely…

The 7 principles are:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • 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 a part.

If I could, I’d make them:

We believe

  1. All people inherently can do good, act from love, and possess a right to conscience, and so
  2. Truth and meaning are discoveries on your journey; also
  3. All relations  are infused with justice and compassion.  Then,
  4. All congregations should accept and encourage your spiritual growth and
  5. All congregations, communities, and nations must use democracy because
  6. We can envision a world overflowing with peace, liberty, and justice for all and
  7. A world where we are mindful caretakers of the interdependent web enmeshing all life.

    3. We’re free to learn together.
    4. We search for what is true.
    5. All people need a voice.
