The Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden is a welcoming and caring community which celebrates and upholds its commitment to diversity in beliefs, background, and life experience, while challenging ourselves and others to seek justice through loving action.
With historical roots which spring from the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalists believe that the personal conscience and experience of each individual are the final authorities in matters of faith.  Rather than subscribing to a single religious creed or doctrine, we strive to keep our minds open to the questions humans have asked across all cultures since the beginning of civilization.  Ours is a faith in action.  We work to make our principles of human dignity, compassion, and justice more alive in this world.  We believe in love.

IN SOLIDARITY WITH OUR UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN UGANDA
Rev. Mark Kiyimba
On October 6th we were honored by the presence of Rev. Mark Kiyimba, the pastor of New Life Kampala Unitarian Universalist Church in Uganda, at our worship service.

Rev. Kiyimba is an outspoken advocate for just treatment of Uganda's gay and lesbian population and has been a leading voice in the fight against Uganda's pending anti-LGBT legislation, which would mandate harsh penalties such as life imprisonment or death just for being homosexual in Uganda. In addition to leading his congregation, Rev. Kiyimba operates a primary school for over 650 students, many of whom have been affected by HIV/AIDS, and a children's home of 44 kids for AIDS orphans near Masaka, Uganda.   He is currently working on a project to construct a well to provide water for those in the village who currently must walk over two miles to the nearest water supply.

Learn more about the work of Rev. Kiyimba, his congregation,
and the great things being done at the school and children's home by visiting the website of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Uganda.
Come celebrate what can never be just another day. . .
