1982 General Resolution

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1982 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association supports the Dialogue of World Religions Affirmation of the International Association for Religious Freedom by affirming:"Like tide and time, religion is a natural force.

We acknowledge religion as reality greater than individual life.

In response to that reality, we will join rallies or marches that witness to peace and social justice.

We will contribute to the creation of a network of retreats and training centers in which individuals may be both participants and observers in learning another religious tradition.

As spiritual discipline, we will give up at least one meal each month and will give the money saved to some cause of human need.

We recognize the importance of raising the consciousness of government officials who violate human rights. We will petition those officials by postcard and other appropriate means.

We will support the 1982 United Nations Special Session on Disarmament."
