Religions are made unique through their differentiated sources of authority and resulting grounds for what is believed to be the truth. For some, the authority may be a sacred book or the revelation of a great leader.
For Unitarian Universalists, the source of authority is individual experience which is refined through reason and spirit and tested in the community.
Therefore we believe not what we are told to believe, nor what we wish to believe, but what we are compelled by conscience to believe.
Northwoods’ religious education (RE) programs for all ages reflect the importance that Unitarian Universalism places on the personal spiritual journey through learning.
