Building the Beloved Community

On this page we will curate content, including videos, to inspire ways of Building the Beloved Community that will Heal the Loneliness that Exists in the World.

There is a movement in our midst to create a Common Ethics Panel to hold fellowshipped clergy accountable to all non-fellowshipped UU professionals and laity. Doing so will take us long strides towards building the beloved community that is spiritually mature and safe for all.
