Who We Are
Members and friends of Greater Nashville UU come from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. Our stories are different and our identities more so, but we believe that our spiritual journeys are enhanced by this diversity and that we learn from each other.
…all faiths and beliefs – Atheism to earth-centered beliefs to mainstream religions
…all families – Single, married, same-gender, grandparent/child, interfaith
Our congregation is for times such as these.
Trust love. Embody sanctuary. Champion justice.
The transforming power of love is our core belief.
We embody a sanctuary of compassion, integrity, and respect.
We champion justice, equity, and peace.
We covenant together to make a welcoming community,
To walk together in the way of truth and love,
To seek the life of the spirit, as it is known by each person,
To support each other in thought, word, and deed,
As we work to build a better world.
The Welcoming Congregation Program
In the 1980s and 90s, when the word “welcoming” became a code word for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, the Unitarian Universalist Association launched a Welcoming Congregation Program to help us learn how to undo homophobia—and later, transphobia (prejudice against transgender people)—in our hearts and minds, our congregations, and our communities.
Today, most Unitarian Universalist congregations are recognized Welcoming Congregations. The spiritual practice of welcome is a very important one to our faith community.
Greater Nashville UU became a Welcoming Congregation in 2004.
