About this Organization:


Arlington Street Church - Unitarian Universalist

Gathered in love and service for justice and peace. Since 1729,

the congregation has been home to an enduring tradition of liberal religion with a

commitment to social justice. We have contributed significantly to the

religious and social history of North America, including the founding of the

American Unitarian movement.

With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian

Universalists believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason are the

final authorities in religion. Instead of subscribing to a single religious

creed or doctrine, we keep an open mind to the religious questions people have

struggled with in all times and places, and we honor a diversity of answers.
