We are happy to know your congregation wants to explore the world of international partnership with a UU or Unitarian congregation in another country. These partnerships can be invigorating, inspiring and educational for individuals and the congregation as a whole.
You will all learn new geography, a great lesson for R.E. classes. You will meet wonderful new friends with amazing stories to tell. Some of those stories are funny, some are sad — some will touch you deeply.
As different as our lives are from many of our partners, the one thing that remains the same is that we share a common faith that values freedom, reason and tolerance.
When we stand together with our co-religionists around the world, we are all a little taller and a little stronger. As we stand arm-in-arm with them we show the world that Unitarian Universalism is a religion of caring and commitment.
