Unitarian Universalist Pamphlets

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 Unitarian Universalist (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.

Drawing on the many voices that make up our rich and diverse denomination, the pamphlet team creates pamphlets for spiritual seekers, new Unitarian Universalists, those who are curious about Unitarian Universalism, and those asking how Unitarian Universalism can meet their spiritual and pastoral needs. The pamphlets introduce readers to a bold, compassionate, reverent, and inclusive Unitarian Universalist faith; invite them into spiritual growth; and offer messages of transformational love.

UU pamphlets are available from inSpirit: The UU Book and Gift Shop along with a wide selection of bookmarks, wallet cards, and posters to help congregations and UUs offer a welcoming introduction to our faith.
