Welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware

Greetings, and welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD).  If you are new to Unitarian Universalism (UU), you are in for a real adventure.  If you know a little (or a lot) about UU’s, this will be somewhat familiar territory.

We were chartered in 2009; but we come out of a long progressive tradition of freethinking, responsible people who take very seriously growing as spiritual beings. We are a small group, but value enthusiastically sharing our time energy and talent.  We invite you to get to know us by joining us in our virtual services.

Next Sunday’s Service – 10:00 am, October 17

“All In” for Climate Justice: Food Equity, Sustainability and the UN – Sheryl Winsby and Wendy Picket

October 16th is World Food Day while the 17th is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. This seems like an appropriate time to honor the UUA’s office at the United Nations and their focus for 2021 which is Food Equity and Sustainability for Climate Justice. Of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that the UN is using to work on global climate change and protection of vulnerable populations by 2030, we will explore Goals 2, 10 and 15, which are most relevant to our theme. We will look for ways in which we can make a difference. How can we move to align our personal consumption choices and advocacy efforts with our UU values in this area? Read more.

Please email uucdcontact@gmail.com for information about joining us in the Zoom meeting.

What Do We Believe?

It is difficult to briefly describe the complexity and diversity of our spiritual community.  That’s because we are more about supporting and engaging each other on our own individual spiritual journeys, than on making truth claims or seeking conformity.  It is often said that we are more interested in a good discussion, than in agreement.  So rather than being about a belief system, we are about personal freedom and personal responsibility.  We each have the personal freedom to search for our own understanding.  With that comes the personal responsibility to follow through on that quest.  In the words of retired UU minister Richard Gilbert, we: ‘provide tools for building a theology based on the materials of our individual life experiences.’

So if you are looking for a spiritual home which:

    • welcomes you as you are,
    • celebrates the human condition as it is,
    • challenges us to explore the meanings of our lives, and the commitments which give it purpose,
    • encourages us to ask questions about our understanding of the sacred and divine,
    • engages with us in the answers we find,
    • offers the support of a caring community, and
    • provides us with a safe place to discover more about ourselves;

then come and join us.  We gather on Sunday mornings to celebrate life.

Our Minister

Rev. Dr. Kharma R. Amos has served as the UUCD’s Minister since September, 2019.   Kharma comes to UUCD with a personal, familial history of interfaith (including Baptist, Baha’i, Spiritual Humanist, and Atheist) understandings of spirituality/life.  She has studied and practiced learning more about other expressions of faith that expand our capacity to know, understand, and be shaped by the mystery of life, which is bigger than all of us. Most important to her is that we work together to respect all people, learn from one another, and make the world a better and more just place for all.
