Unitarian Universalism is a theologically diverse religion that encourages people to seek their own spiritual path. As a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association of North America, First Parish in Wayland affirms and promotes seven UU Principles that guide us collectively and individually.
We hold these seven Principles as strong values and moral teachings:
- 1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- 2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
- 3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
- 4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- 5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
- 6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- 7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
These principles guide us in our spiritual journeys. We welcome people in all walks of life who might find meaning in our emphasis on personal religious integrity and commitment.
