Unitarian Universalists prescribe to no specific dogma or doctrine, instead, UU's are guided only by the Seven UU Principles. (https://uulagunabeach.org/about/our-beliefs) In 2023, Community Minister and Starr King Divinity Student, Don West, Jr., leads us in an eight-part series examining our Seven UU Principles and challenging us to be the change we wish to see in the world by and through our embodying and living the principles.
In our first installment on January 15th, Don will explore the 1st UU Principle - "The inherent dignity and worth of every person." Don, will deliver a message based on the quote often attributed to the Mahatma, Ghandi, "Be the change you want to see in the world." Against the backdrop of the Mahatma's words, Don will explore how what we do each day ultimately adds up to tabulate our entire life's journey. Taking it one level deeper, we will look at the 1st principle and its challenge to us as individuals and a spiritual community.
