Visiting a congregation for the first time, or even the first few times, can be intimidating. Whether you are a Unitarian Universalist (UU) new to a particular congregation or a seeker curious about Unitarian Universalism, it can be hard to even know what your questions are about this religious community. What are the beliefs and customs here? Am I welcome? Will my family feel comfortable here? What does this community and/or religious tradition have to offer me as I navigate the journey of life? And what about the big questions I have about the meaning of it all? Is it alright to talk about my uncertainty here?
That's why many UU churches have a pamphlet rack right in the front lobby, with short, accessible, and clear introductions to Unitarian Universalist beliefs and theology; statements of affirmation for people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and identities; and explanations of what you can expect to find in most UU communities. Pamphlets also offer short lists of other resources that you can go to for more in-depth information.
