Spiritual Practice and Prayer in Unitarian Universalism

There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
There are a thousand ways to go home again.
13th century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi (translated and interpreted)

Unitarian Universalism offers diverse and meaningful ways of connecting with the sacred. We may find more joy by keeping a gratitude journal, more peace by reflecting in meditation, more hope after joining hands in a circle of prayer, more connection while marching for justice, more inspiration from hiking in the forest. We are each encouraged to embrace and practice forms of spirituality that resonate with our hearts and minds.

Our communities are homes for people with a diversity of spiritual practices. Through our worship services and programs, we offer people the opportunity to learn more and go deeper. Check out a congregation near you to learn about the workshops, worships, and groups they offer.
