The First Principle

Susan Czarnocki asks: When you hear the phrase “the inherent worth and dignity of every person”, what image forms in your head? A mother’s love, the kindness of strangers, multicultural diversity? How do war, torturers, mass-murderers and serial killers fit into this picture? What is the ‘real world’ meaning of the our First Unitarian Principle?

This year we will be incorporating considerations of our seven principles as a recurring theme in our services. Let’s start this process by thinking about what the first principle means, and how it should be “affirmed and promoted”.

I will post some questions and discussion points on our Lakeshore blog early in September that we can address during the service.
