Who Are Unitarian Universalists?
The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) was formed in 1961 by the merger of the Unitarians and Universalists in North America. Both traditions are much older, the roots going back at least to the early days of the Reformation. Today our group is non-doctrinal — there is no dogma or catechism defining our beliefs as a denomination. But the congregations of the UUA have adopted a statement of Seven Principles that unites us in a common view of the world and our place in it. The Flaming Chalice serves as the symbol of the UUA, of many congregations, and of Unitarians and Universalists throughout the world.
