Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

UU Wisdom

"The Bible is holy scripture because it is a living document and foundation of many important faiths, including Unitarian Universalism. To abandon the Bible would mean alienation from one of the world's most important influences on religious thought—liberal and otherwise. Our UU [Unitarian Universalist] Principles and Purposes are saturated with biblical concepts and ideals. Our concept of respect for the web of existence, for instance, emanates from a stream of thought that flows through the Psalms and the Prophets from that same God of Genesis who declared the goodness of creation."

—David McFarland, minister

Who We Are

Who We Are

The Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, founded in January 1989, is a relatively new religious group in northern Wisconsin. We are a chartered member of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Unitarian Universalist Association grew out of the consolidation in 1961 of two religious denominations: the Universalists, organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, organized in 1825.

  • We believe in the freedom of religious expression. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion. In the end, religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves.
  • We uphold the free search for truth. We are not bound by a statement or belief, nor do we ask anyone to ascribe to a creed.
  • We believe in the toleration of religious ideas. All religions, in every age and culture, possess not only intrinsic merit, but also a potential value for those who have learned the art of listening. We believe that religious wisdom is ever changing. We celebrate unfolding truths known to teachers, prophets and sages throughout the ages.
  • We affirm the worth and dignity of each human being. All people on earth have an equal claim to life, liberty, and justice. We know people differ in their opinions and life-styles, and believe these differences generally should be honored.
  • We seek to act as a moral force in the world, believing that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion. The here and now and the effects our actions will have on future generations deeply concern us. We know that our relationships with one another, with other people, races, and nations, should be governed by justice, equity and compassion.

We welcome anyone who is sympathetic with our purposes to become a member of our Fellowship. To become a member of the Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Fellowship you need only to sign the Membership Book and make an annual contribution of record. Membership is open to all persons 18 years of age or older regardless of race, color, gender, affectional or sexual orientation, or national origin.
