“Love, Hate and Social Justice.”
Christopher Moore, UU Ministerial Student, with Service Leader Janis Collins.

In the early 90's a white-supremacist group moved into the area. My friends from the Anti-Racist Action group and I were quickly drawn into the resulting controversy. How we engage our ideological opponents is every bit as important as the why. It is hard to love in the midst of conflict. But it is in those very moments that love and compassion are most important. But what does that look like exactly??

“Radical Theology as a Source of Hope, Not Terror – Humanitarian Religion as Opposed to Ideological Fanaticism.”
Neil Carver with Service Leader Jessica Rodela. 

Bill C-51 addresses “radicalization” as a threat, but is that always the case?   This past winter, Neil enjoyed doing genealogical research and reading the religious philosophy of Don Cuppit. Within his family tree, he discovered a number of ancestors who had adopted political social and religious ideals in conflict with those of the prevailing status quo. Cupitt's “radical theology” advocates a philosophy and humanitarian ethic arising from Judaic-Christian roots, but often deferred by institutional religion and resisted by those whose interests are threatened by those of a free, liberal democratic, and multi-ethnic society.

Welcome to our Congregation!


 We are a liberal religious community that draws inspiration from its Judeo-Christian heritage as well as the wisdom of world religions, our direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder, the words and deeds of prophetic women and men, humanist teachings, and the spiritual teachings of Earth-centred traditions. We include believers, doubters, and seekers; those who pray, those who meditate, and those who pour their souls out in song. We pledge to support one another in our individual searches for truth and meaning. Will you join us?

We gather for our regular Sunday services at 10:30 AM. Located in Kitchener, we draw people from all over the Waterloo region. Visitors are warmly welcomed. Please follow us on Facebook to be notified of additional updates. 

On October 12, 2014, two fibre art pieces were installed on the chancel wall. Artist Karen Cummings, a member of the congregation, introduced the pieces.

 

In 2001 our congregation voted to become part of the Welcoming Congregation Program. This is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take intentional steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We consider this to be important because of the specifically religious prejudices that have made LGBTQ people unwelcome in so many houses of worship. Please see Rev. Jessica P. Rodela’s powerful sermon on LGBTQ bullying, “When Rainbows Fade.”
