Voices in Unitarian Universalism

Buddhist Voices in Unitarian Universalism

Both the seven principles and the six sources of Unitarian Universalism affirm and encourage Unitarian Universalists in exploring world faith traditions while maintaining their UU identity. Buddhist Voices in Unitarian Universalism brings together for the first time the voices of UUs who have become Buddhists while not sacrificing UU identity, and Buddhists who have found in Unitarian Universalism a spiritual home where they can sustain a practice and join in an activist religious community that accepts and encourages who they are. Also included is an exploration of how American Buddhism has been influenced by Unitarian Universalism and how UU congregations are being changed by Buddhist practice.

This new anthology includes essays by James Ford, Sam Trumbore, and Meredith Garmon.

Christian Voices in Unitarian Universalism (2006)

Fifteen personal stories from laity and clergy alike show what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist Christian today. These men and women arrive at their faith by many paths -- influenced by the Bible, Jesus Christ Superstar, and even the Bernstein Mass. Here is a fresh and much-needed look at UU Christians, who, for decades, have kept the work and spirit of Christianity alive in our liberal religion. The editor, Rev. Kathleen Rolenz, is parish co-minister of West Shore UU Church with her husband, Rev. Wayne Arnason. Foreword by Carl Scovel.

Jewish Voices in Unitarian Universalism

In a fresh collection of thoughtful essays, 20 writers explore the blessings and challenges of Jewish Unitarian Universalist identity and community. While there has been a long and consistent presence of Jewish culture and people in Unitarian Universalism, this poignant anthology is the first to give voice to this community's struggles, wisdom, and contributions. Essayists include born Jews who came to Unitarian Universalism, Unitarian Universalists who adopted Judaism as a spiritual path, and Unitarian Universalists who have encountered Judaism in diverse ways.
