Many Thanks to Phil T for being our point man while we rebuild our church after the flood.
The faith we live by in this church searches for truth in our own individual hearts, in our own life experiences, in the many faith traditions and philosophies that nurture us, in the explorations of science. Ours is not a blind faith: It is based neither on creeds, the scriptures of any particular religion, the pronouncements of a church hierarchy, nor the words of any single person. Rather, we submit our beliefs to the test of knowledge, reason, and compassion. Our faith aims to treat all humans irrespective of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious belief with caring and respect. Ours is a faith of deeds and commitment to building humane character and love for the natural world. It is a faith of the free mind and the loving heart.
Ours is a simple faith.
Life is a short embrace.
Heaven is in this place, every day.
Hope is the ground we till.
Make each day what you will.
Thankful for dreams fulfilled, every day.

Competing visions of our national identity pit proponents of immigrants' full assimilation against multiculturalists who promote ethnic subgroups. Should UUs "standing on the side of love" work for an integrationist common ground? How can Ohio UUs promote immigrant friendly cities?
