“We have passed the 8th Principle,
worship leader, eddy fried
6 weeks ago, the UUCHV voted to approve the 8th Principle.
In our discussions about this new 8th Principle, we have shared much about becoming an anti-racist church.
When are our discussions powerful encouragement to embrace necessary change?
When might they be simple “political correctness”?
The only true answer lies within each of us.
In this service, we will delve into what the 8th principle can mean for each of us and our community. We hope to open up the infinite ways each of us can contribute to this movement,
to make this a better, more just and inclusive world.

Eddy Fried, a member of UUCHV since 1998, has been studying anti-racism since 2007. Former co-organizer of Westchester UU’s for Racial Justice and former co-chair of our UU District Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee, he is a founding member of a faith based AR group: The AR Coalition for Faith, Ethical and Spiritual Communities. He remains actively involved in AR work at his place of employment, the Peekskill NAACP and this church. He and his wife, Clare, taught OWL for 21 years.

summer sunday services
Our awesome team will be back with you for zoom summer services starting July 4th. This summer we are trying something new: combining services on zoom with First Unitarian Society of Westchester (FUSW). We will each be responsible for 5 services throughout the summer. Both congregations will get to experience different ways of doing things (such as Joys and Sorrows, hymn singing, and conversation after the formal service is over) in this summer collaboration. This is only a summer project, but we look forward to getting to know our Hastings UU “neighbors” through sharing Worship together. A unique collaboration opportunity.
Please join us in welcoming our UU neighbors this summer on zoom.
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.
