The Seven Principles of UU
There are seven principles that Unitarian Universalists affirm and promote:
(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.
(4) A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
(5) The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process between ourselves and in society at large;
(6) The goal of a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
(7) Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Our Mission Statement
We, the Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Congregation, are a welcoming, multi-cultural religious community. We endeavour to create an atmosphere of respect toward others and to pursue progressive ideals. We seek to nourish fellowship, dialogue and mutual respect, and to explore and develop intellectually, ethically and spiritually together.
Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Congregation, a member of the Canadian Unitarian Council, in striving to correct injustice and assist the disadvantaged, champions the inherent worth and dignity of all people.
A Welcoming Congregation
The Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Congregation is a Welcoming Congregation. That designation is for those UU congregations which have completed a Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) program and have passed a congregational vote to affirm that they welcome the membership and active participation of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and/or transgender people.
