Free and Responsible

Unitarian Universalism upholds the value of a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” How can we practice balancing both freedom and responsibility? What do we do when the two seem to be in conflict with one another?

Carter Smith is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist from North Carolina. In her ministry, she is called to co-create communities that help people connect with one another and live more meaningfully. She graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2021 and plans to be ordained at her home congregation this Spring. Carter lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and their many housemates, where she enjoys cooking and sharing food in community, and exploring what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

This Sunday we will have a multi-platform service. You can attend in-person, OR you can also attend via our online Zoom option. Our current in-person gathering guidelines include information found here. Children are welcome with their parents in the sanctuary. A small creativity and play area is provided for very young children inside the sanctuary. Currently no separate in-person classroom space, this includes no separate programs for children or separate nursery care area.
