- Our Mission Statement
We, the Dwellers in this Grove, acknowledging the power of spirit, the importance of living in harmony with the Earth’s cycles, and the vast resources found in the many traditions of Pagan and Unitarian Universalist spiritual practice do covenant and affirm our commitment to one another to work together to create and maintain a safe and loving space within which to share our lives and our spiritual quests in True Community.
The purpose of our chapter is to give Pagan-identified UUs the unique and delightful experience of being able to pursue their individual journeys without having to deny themselves the benefits and resources of church affiliation.
We seek to teach non-Pagan UUs about Paganism and non-UU Pagans about Unitarian Universalism, and to honor this we give respect and draw knowledge and wisdom from all the sources of the Unitarian Universalist tradition while holding close to our hearts the spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
We come together in peace and trust to support each other in our Earth-based spiritual journeys, independent of personal lifestyle, gender, sexuality, disability, or political philosophy.
