About Us

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.

Come As You Are and Bring a Friend

Reverend Rod Thompson
 
This service has two parts: (1) recognition that we expect you to bring your authentic self into our community and that we strive to be welcoming to one and all, and (2) encouragement for you to bring a friend. Overcome your shyness and ask someone to join us!

Rev. Rod Thompson, now a retired Unitarian Universalist minister, living in Ravenna, Ohio, was our Interim Minister during our Transition year - the year between Rev. Gary Blaine and Rev. Beth Marshall, and the year we moved into our present building from our old Collingwood location.

Three voices from our congregation share their Pagan, Christian, and Buddhist beliefs and practices that guide and illumine their UU lives. We welcome Amie Brodie, Terry McCauley, and Karen Christie to our pulpit this morning. "The living tradition we share draws from many sources," according to Singing the Living Tradition, including "wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life."
