"Transformational Welcome"

By Zr. Alex Kapitan

As Unitarian Universalists, we are called to form communities of difference, and to engage with what a difference our differences make. Building relationships across lines of difference means that “welcome” must be about more than opening our doors (or Zooms) and being friendly; instead, welcome requires transformation: of our awareness, our hearts, our congregation, and our world. In this service guest speaker Zr. Alex Kapitan, a queer and trans UU leader, will preach on what it takes to practice this sort of welcome—the kind of welcome that can ultimately transform us all.

More information about our guest speaker: Zr. Alex Kapitan is a lay community minister, educator, editor, consultant, and organizer. A trans and queer lifelong Unitarian Universalist, Alex does interfaith LGBTQ work and supports congregations in becoming places of radical welcome for all. Ze is the co-founder of the Transforming Hearts Collective, the co-leader of the program Trans Inclusion in Congregations, and the founder of Radical Copyeditor, an anti-oppressive language project.

“The Eighth Principle”

By Rev. Shari Woodbury and the Sister Church Team
As part of the living tradition of Unitarian Universalism, we are on a journey of Becoming: the practice of continual growth. When the Unitarians and Universalists first merged in the 1960s, we adopted six principles affirmed by member congregations. With a rise in earth-consciousness, in the 80s a 7th principle was articulated. Today, UUs are in various stages of exploring the addition of an 8th principle, expressing our commitment to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community. Learn more about the 8th Principle Project and join the conversation about how it might further our becoming.
