Celebrating United Nations Sunday is an excellent opportunity for Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations to express their commitment to our Sixth Principle: We Covenant to Affirm and Promote the Goal of World Community with Peace, Liberty and Justice for All.
The UU-United Nations Office’s (UU-UNO’s) theme for UN Sunday 2011 is:
Empower Women for a Better World.
The UU-UNO recommends that congregations schedule a UN Sunday service on October 23, 2011, (or another convenient date) in recognition of the birth of the United Nations on October 24th, 1945.
Congregations participating in the Unitarian Universalist Association’s (UUA's) “Faith Without Borders” (FWB) program will find the organization of this resource into 7 areas familiar:
