"Unitarian Universalism affirms:
That Creation is too grand, complex, and
mysterious to be captured in a narrow creed.
That is why we cherish individual freedom of
belief. At the same time our convictions lead
us to other affirmations . . .
That the blessings of life are available to
everyone, not just the Chosen or the Saved;
That Creation itself is Holy -- the earth
and all its creatures, the stars in all their glory;
That the Sacred or Divine, the Precious and
Profound, are made evident not in the miraculous
or supernatural but in the simple and the everyday;
That human beings, joined in collaboration with the
gifts of grace, are responsible for the planet and its future;
That every one of us is held in Creation's hand -- a part
of the interdependent cosmic web -- and hence strangers
need not be enemies;
That no one is saved until we All are saved, where All
means the whole of Creation;
That the paradox of life is to love it all the more even
though we ultimately lose it."
William Shulz, World January/February, 1990
