To write a proposal for a change of direction for a religious institution requires courage and a willingness to risk one’s life. That has been tested and proven true many times historically, so why would I be so audacious as to attempt such a task? Personally, I don’t feel any hostility to the current UU principles, in fact, I like them very much. However, Unitarians, back in 1936 in Unitarians Face A New Age, wrote that we as individuals must think for ourselves, and that thinking includes analyzing Universal principles of human aspiration and behavior.

For those people to be granting me the right and liberty of thinking with my own mind is the greatest trust that can be given. Furthermore, it is offering help to me in the most profound possible way, because only a person living their own life can know what life is about. Their helping me is the essence of love. Love is expressed by intentionally helping another being to fulfill their life, liberty, and opportunities. Love is helping a living being to flourish in their mind, body, and actions.


We Unitarian Universalists seek to:

  1. (6)—discover the orderly nature of the Universe so we may be in greater harmony with (its behaviors. what it offers (to ) us.)
  2. (4)—minimize all suffering and to enhance human health and abundance.
  3. (3)—create and maintain (an ideal a well-balanced) society so (we may all everyone) may live within a sustainable world.
  4. (2)—acknowledge that (we as) individuals are too removed from (their our) own invisible thinking processes to ever (clearly fully) understand (their our) own convictions and reasons.
  5. (1)—acknowledge that (we as) a group of involved, informed people with conflicting views are more likely to find solutions to conflicts than an isolated individual.
  6. (5)—make a deliberate effort to strengthen every individual’s understanding of the highest values of which that they can become aware (of and make real).
