Our congregation lifts up our lives within community so that we may feel ourselves more deeply rooted, and empowered in our transforming commitments of greater loving, wider justice and deeper happiness.

A Green Sanctuary at First UU?

greenchaliceFrom the Green Team: First UU is starting a journey to achieve certification as a "Green Sanctuary" under UUA criteria. The Board of Trustees has designated the church's Green Team as coordinator of this effort. All church members and organizations will be invited to participate, and the Green Team is looking for YOUR ideas and hands as we move toward a sustainable church operation.

For more information on this initiative, check out the UUA's Green Sanctuary Program here.


Please help us by becoming part of this effort!  Contact Tom Baillieul, Green Team Chair, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , 614-447-1223.

 
I believe there is one (Unitarian) life-giving force in the universe to which we are all (Universalist) necessarily connected.  Unitarian Universalists gather in community to celebrate this connectedness and to encourage behavior that respects and cares for all life and the environment upon which we depend.  We respect all the religious traditions that promote love and peace in the world, but we don't believe any one of them is absolute truth.
