Gifts for the Liberal Spirit
Revs. Makanah and Bob Morriss

What distinguishes UUism from most other religious traditions is both our openness and our commitment to using a variety of sources for insight, understanding and wisdom. Join us this Sunday as we explore the six sources that are named as the second half of our UU Principles and Purposes. Which ones are most important in your current religious journey? Are there any you might like to explore more fully?
