From the UUA website:

We affirm the inherent worth and dignity of all beings, and we believe each of us is responsible and capable to help change the world for the better. Through continually learning and growing together we encourage and support one another, and our children, to know and express our moral agency. From anti-racism and environmental justice to personal spiritual growth, using many formats for learning, Unitarian Universalist (UU) religious education taps the wisdom of diverse Sources. We help one another find grounding and connection with ethics, faith, spirit, and UU identity. We feed the faith development of everyone involved; teachers are learners, learners are teachers.

Here at UUCO, we are committed to intentional, careful exploration of our religious and spiritual path. Our program is designed to acknowledge our individual paths within a connected, loving community.
