Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with Jewish-Christian roots. It has no creed. It affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief and the search for advancing truth, and tries to provide a warm, open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion.

Welcome to UUCO!

We are a caring intergenerational community that celebrates diversity and fosters spiritual growth through free thought and discussion with respect for personal beliefs. We seek the wisdom of many religious traditions and of ourselves, and we encourage the expression of personal ideals in service to people, other life, and our planet.

Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) will be in Oxford March 22 and 23!!! Rev. Morales will be speaking at Bryant Hall, on the Campus of the University of Mississippi on Sat. March 22, at 5:00. People are gathering at 4:30 for this event! The talk is titled Mississippians Standing on the Side of Love; A Celebration of Love Equity and Compassion.

While the event features Rev. Morales, it will also include several speakers from local progressive organizations who will speak briefly about these organizations: William Winter Institute, PFLAG, Pride Network, Gaining Ground, Good Food for Oxford Schools and UM Office of Sustainability. There will be good food and music (provided by Andrew Gordan!) as well!

Rev. Morales will also be preaching at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Oxford on Sunday, 11:00 on March 23 (31 County Road 198, Oxford). His sermon title is: Love Reaches Out!! Come early!!

UU's have a proud history of public witness. Our bright yellow "Standing on the Side of Love" t-shirts are found at demonstrations for social justice. But love doesn't just take a stand. Love reaches out. Can we learn to be as passionate and effective at reaching out as we are about standing for justice?

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Oxford is a Welcoming Congregation!

This designation means we have gone through a period of study to become intentionally more inclusive of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender.
