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.
  • Participate in church social action projects.

7. We believe in caring for our planet earth, the home we share with all living things.

  • Take good care of our church. Help clean up.
  • Be careful with our space, furniture, and materials.
  • Use only what you need. Recycle.
