Mission & Vision

Who are we? 

We are Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church, a community where love works. Together we explore the eternal, nurture community, and build a more just world. Together, we dare to embody beloved community.  

Beloved community is part of our Unitarian Unviersalist heritage. The term was first given prominence by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his Ware Lecture at the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly in 1966, and later incorporated into his many speeches. In our vision / mission, the expression “dare to embody beloved community” conveys that we are not there yet, but we are boldly committed to taking risks in actively pursuing it. 

Adopted unanimously by the Congregation in May 2016 and guiding all that we are becoming, come be part of a community where love works by working to align all that we do with our vision by experimenting with new ways of doing worship, of being in community, and of focusing our social justice efforts.
