"It's a Process"
Rev. Kimberley Debus,
They (whoever 'they' are) say that the only constant is change. In this service, we'll explore what that means from a theological and spiritual perspective, and how this way of understanding calls us to our work in the world.

The 8th Principle
The 8th Principle is a new principle proposed in 2013 by two Unitarian Universalists Paula Cole Jones and Bruce Pollack-Johnson. It addresses how we need to dismantle systemic racism and other forms of oppression. It has been adopted by more than thirty-three Unitarian Universalist congregations to date, and many others considering adoption in the coming year. The UUA is considering adopting it in June of 2022. The UUCHV Board plans to vote on it at our Annual Meeting in June 2021.
The 8th Principle States
“We, the members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Hudson Valley, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
The UUCHV 8th Principle Task Force was appointed by the UUCHV Board to provide opportunities for members and friends to learn about the principle through suggested readings and videos.
You will find a link below to all the bi-weekly eNews editions and suggested learning resources about the 8th Principle in case you missed any.

WHO WE ARE
Unitarian Universalism is a covenantal, non-creedal religion-- meaning we are bound together not by dogma or doctrine, but by our commitment to be in intentional and thoughtful relationship with one another as we walk the journey of seeking the truth.
As a community that is committed to living, working, and worship with each other in ways that foster individual and collective growth, we agree to live by our covenant.
To create an atmosphere of trust and safety, we agree to call each other back into covenant and to forgive ourselves and others.
