As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm the worth and dignity of every individual person. And, we acknowledge the profoundly interconnected nature of our existence. Our congregational way recognizes these two realities. We are at once autonomous and interdependent. This is true for individuals and true for our congregations. Each is autonomous but connected to the larger whole. As we continue the theme of Identity, we’ll consider how congregational polity shapes our UU identity.
