exploring our beliefs, living our values, changing our world

 

At the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jackson, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person and seek justice, equity, and compassion in all human relationships. This is the beginning of our covenant as Unitarian Universalists. In keeping with our long-standing commitment to civil rights, we categorically denounce the passage of HB1523. This law is immoral and violates our principles, including acceptance of one another and a world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. This law does not protect our faith tradition. Instead it stands in opposition to all we hold dear. We cannot uphold this or any other law that defends discriminatory behavior for any reason. As the leadership of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jackson, we stand in solidarity with our LGBT family and friends. We want you to know, whoever you are, wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we welcome you with open arms.
