Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson

Our Mission

We transform ourselves, our community, and our world by intentionally living our Unitarian-Universalist principles.

 

Welcoming Congregation

Greetings and WelcomeRev. Bethany Russell-Lowe

Welcome! We are so glad you have found your way here. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson has been a beacon of liberal religion and a place to pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning in Tucson for over 70 years. If you are looking for a place where you can explore your own spiritual truths in community with others, you have come to the right place! As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that we need not think alike to love alike. Our community is bound together by our Seven Principles which include: the dignity and worthiness of all people, equity and compassion in human relations, and respect for the interdependent web of life. We take inspiration from multiple religions as well as humanist, secular, and scientific thought. Come join us to learn more!  Rev. Bethany Russell-Lowe (minister@uuctucson.org)

Worship Service

The Deep Work of Relationship

Thursday February 20, 6pm

Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.
If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas. For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.
--Kahlil Gibran "The Prophet"

Each service begins at 5:30 p.m. with a Bring Your Own dinner to eat with friends. At 6 p.m., we will start a 45 minute service with a dessert potluck after. When the weather cooperates, we’ll drag out the fire pit and toast marshmallows!

When the Gods are Asleep

Sunday February 23, 10:30am

Rev. Bethany Russell-Lowe

There is a Hindu story about one of their gods, Shiva, keeping watch over the world at night. On one night of the year, Shivaratri, Shiva sleeps and the people stay up to watch the world for him. What happens when the gods are asleep? Whether we are theistic, atheistic, agnostic, or something else... what is our responsibility to this world?

Mar 14/15: UU Booth at UA Book Fest (volunteer signup)

Southern Arizona UU Booth, March 14 & 15, at the University of Arizona Book Festival in Tucson

Over 100,000 people attend this festival each year, with many seeing and stopping at the UU Booth. Book lovers come from everywhere to the Festival, but especially from Southern Arizona. That is why all four UU Churches in Southern Arizona sponsor the UU Booth. As a result of this exposure, our churches always have people who visit shortly thereafter. As advertisers know, nothing works better than repeated exposure, so here we go again!

To volunteer to be a greeter in the booth, just click on the link below to sign up. You only need to be at the booth for 3 hours, so you can have the rest of the time at the Book Festival for yourself. Also, a week or so before the Festival, we send you a reminder with tips for booth volunteers as well as the specific booth location.

If you have questions or need help signing up, please feel free to contact Erin Chadwell, Administrator at MVUU at 520 579-7094 or me at 520 664-5323.

Thank you for helping make the UU Booth a success.

Our Seven 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.

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.
