Welcoming Congregations Program
The Welcoming Congregation program is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take active steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of individuals with marginalized sexual orientation and gender identities.

I was attending a seasonal celebration with a group I had been associated with for a few years. We occasionally rented space from the Unitarian Fellowship for our more formal gatherings.
One meeting, while we waited for the activities to begin, I glanced over to a table that held pamphlets on Unitarian Universalism 7 Principles and the 6 Sources.

As I read down the list, I check marked each Principle in turn.
Yes, yes and yes I agreed with all the guiding Principles. No hesitation.
