18th Century Irish Statesman Edmond Burke wrote that people “are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites.” He and a few other insightful Europeans of the time understood the challenges that the nascent United States would have. They knew then that our biggest problem would be giving up our own freedoms in order to ensure democracy. Their prophecies have come to pass, and they weren’t talking about taking our shoes off at the airport.
The Unitarian Universalist Society of Cleveland is a joyful, welcoming, religious community. We strive to be a sanctuary for all who enter, to reflect the diversity of the local community, and to work toward a more just and sustainable society. We are located in the Coventry neighborhood of Cleveland Heights and are a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
As a Unitarian Universalist congregation we are a non-creedal community. We do not require anyone to subscribe to a specific set of beliefs to be a member of the Society. Instead we live by a covenant that encourages ethical behavior, affirms democracy, celebrates the worth of each individual and unites us in a search for meaning and in reverence for the great mystery that is life.
We are a welcoming congregation and all persons are warmly invited to participate in the life and activities of our community, regardless of color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental abilities or economic status.
We hope that you will join us as we strive to create a diverse, spiritually-uplifting, life-affirming and justice-centered community.
