Unitarian Universalist Association

Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), in full the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in North America, is a liberal religious association of Unitarian Universalist congregations formed by the consolidation in 1961 of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America. Both of these predecessor organizations began as Christian Unitarian and Christian Universalist denominations. However, modern Unitarian Universalists do not limit themselves to Christian beliefs or affinities. Rather, they define themselves as non-creedal, and draw wisdom from various religions and philosophies in addition to Christianity, including Humanism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Earth-centered spirituality. Thus, the UUA qualifies as a form of post-Christian liberal religion with syncretistic leanings.

Famous quotes containing the words association and/or unitarian:

    An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I am so much a Unitarian as this: that I believe the human mind can admit but one God, and that every effort to pay religious homage to more than one being goes to take away all right ideas.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
