The Seven Principles in Word and Worship

Ellen Brandenburg, Editor

The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism continue to be plumbed for meaning, depth and inspiration. This elegant volume explores and expresses their call to ethical action and deeper spirituality with the fresh perspectives of Sarah Lammert, Emily Gage, Robert Hardies, Paige Getty, Parisa Parsa, Sean Parker Dennison, and Forrest Gilmore. Each Principle is accompanied by reflections and worship resources—opening words, a chalice lighting, a responsive reading or litany, a prayer, a meditation, and a benediction.

Ellen Brandenburg, now retired, was formerly the director of ministerial education at the Unitarian Universalist Association. She lives in Thoiry, France, with her husband George.

Praise for The Seven Principles in Word and Worship

"Turning words like truth, dignity, democratic process, and equity into the life and breath of reflection and worship is a daunting assignment. Ellen Brandenburg has assembled a diverse group of young Unitarian Universalist ministers to tackle exactly that. They do our Principles proud."
—Jane Rzepka, senior minister, Church of the Larger Fellowship
