Fredrick, MD CUUPS
We, the Frederick CUUPS (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans) group of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick, honor the UUA 7th principle; “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”. We provide support to all seeking to live a life more in balance with nature by exploring the teachings and traditions of various pagan and Earth-centered religions and philosophies.
We adhere to the mission statement of UUCF, National CUUPS, and the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association. We promote personal responsibility and integrity, diversity and compassion, competency and education in the pursuit of spiritual balance.
We offer our talents and abilities in service to our fellow congregants at UUCF and the greater Frederick community by providing celebrations to honor the Earth and its cycles. We seek both mirth and reverence, and we honor the Divine in many forms.
This community welcomes all who seek a spiritual home. As we build a multigenerational online and offline community, we operate under the following principles:
RESPECT—Our overarching value will be one of respect for self and others as well as for people and ideas we may disagree with. We will value the worth and dignity of all people.
TOLERANCE AND APPRECIATION OF DIVERSITY—We will seek to operate under a “both/and” rather than and “either/or” philosophy (i.e., we will honor others’ paths and welcome differences).
COMPASSION—Ours is a group with a spirit of caring and support. We will seek to encourage and life one another up—especially in difficult times.
CONFIDENTIALITY—What is shared in the closed group stays in the closed group.
ACCOUNTABILITY—We will lovingly hold each other accountable to these shared values, and in the case that a post is offensive or inappropriate (it is okay to say “ouch”), the post will be removed by the moderator. Let the journey begin!
