Are you between the ages of 18 and 35 and looking for a welcoming community of young adults in the Bethesda area? Are you interested in exploring your spirituality, meeting like-minded people, and becoming active in great causes?
We're starting a Young Adult group at the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Bethesda, MD. We'd love for you to join us! RRUUC is a welcoming community with a strong congregation.
If you are asking yourself: What is UU? Am *I* a UU?
We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. We are a "non-creedal" religion: we do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed.
However, there are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
