RE UU Principles

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson Believes in Living our UU Principles in Religious Education

1. We believe that each and every person is important.

  • Safety is out first concern!
  • Children in Nursery – 4nd grade must remain in classrooms or supervised areas until picked up by parents. Older children and youth may be unsupervised in designated areas providing they behave in a safe and respectful manner.
  • Only gentle play is appropriate on church grounds.
  • Treat everyone with respect. Use caring language and behavior.

2. We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.

  • Listen and follow directions.
  • Be polite. Take turns.
  • Care about one another.

3. We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.

  • Make a commitment to regular attendance. Your friends and teachers depend on you.
  • Include everyone in activities and planning.
  • Friends are welcome. Let them know our rules.
  • Participate with enthusiasm.

4. We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.

  • Share your ideas and respect the ideas of others.

5. We believe that all persons should have the right to speak out and have a vote about what concerns them.

  • Express your opinions constructively.
  • Respect the decision of the group.

6. We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.

  • Ask for help when you need it.
  • Do your best to get along with others and to be helpful.
  • Be willing to listen to reminders about your behavior.

Our Eight Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to 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.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson adopted an 8th principle in May, 2021:
  • Journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.

We envision a program that is rooted in our UU principles and a free and responsible search for meaning that through the thoughts and actions of our lives, transforms us, our community, and our world.
