A Spiritual Home and Beacon of Liberal Religion in Topeka
Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Topeka inherits the legacy of Unitarianism and Universalism existing in Topeka since 1885.
We are on the progressive edge of religion, believing that spiritual search, rational thought, and social action in covenanted community is ultimately how we will move each other, and the world, towards peace and justice.
“We are committed to being together and to being together in ways that respect our Principles. Our worship and our work exist in finding practical and nurturing ways to govern ourselves and our congregations by living out our commitment to openness, democratic process, human equality, social justice, and personal exploration.” — Melissa Harris-Perry, UU and MSNBC host
Unitarian Universalism is all about an individuals responsible search for personal truth and wisdom, for your own religious values that have real meaning in every day life. We come together in that search around the expression of our Principles (see below). No matter your Source of grounding, your theology or philosophy of living, we have agreed on these Principles to follow as outcomes of our religious lives. Principles which are open for review and change! If you are looking for a religious home where your search for meaning is not bounded by creeds, but by love, justice, worth, dignity, reason and experience in life, then this may be the community for you!
