UU Miami is bringing together Miami residents for discussion and connection around the common beliefs, values and hopes for our community that we hold, despite our different religious or cultural backgrounds. This will be an opportunity for us to acknowledge our differences but also our shared values, framed around our 7 UU Principles:
1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person.
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our
congregations and in society at large.
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
We will enjoy coffee, tea and light bites on a Friday evening to close out the 10 Days of Connection making connections with people we never really thought to connect with.
This is a time of great division in our country and our community, and the divide is often easier to back away from than to come together to bridge. Exploring how we can find shared values and hopes for our community even among people whose background that is different from ours is a necessary, yet challenging skill that we need more opportunities to practice. This will allow for people to be challenged in their thoughts and beliefs about UUs as a community as well as recognize that we have more in common than we expect.
