Testimonials From Members - Why I became a Unitarian Universalist

Suzanne Ziemer
"Of course, we’re members of all sorts of other groups, both formal and informal, but this church is our mental, spiritual, and social home."
Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825-1921), Unitarian minister.
“Throughout my life, I have addressed issues such as slavery abolition, temperance, and women's rights. In 1902, I helped found the Unitarian Society of Elizabeth, NJ, and served as its minister. In 1920, at age 95, I was the only participant from the 1850 Women's Rights Convention, in Worcester, MA, to see the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, giving women the right to vote.”
Max, parrot pet of Harvey and Ann Heckes
“It is great that Unitarian Universalists respect the interdependent web of all existence of which I am a part! I hope I can attend more Blessing of the Animals services in the future.”
Diane Buckley
“I need to admit that it is the love that I find here that sustains me. It lifts me up when I most need it. It helps me to make a difference in this world and that is what gives my life meaning.”
Jennifer Grant
“I loved the people who were very warm and welcoming. During my first service the lay leader mentioned the Unitarian Universalist principles and he talked about the first one – The Inherent Worth and Dignity of all People! I knew I was home!”
Peggy Eisenberg
“This is a church that is a welcoming congregation, active in social justice issues, and works to combat racism, sexism, and classism. Is it really a church? ... My husband, Steve, and I came to UUCFM a couple years ago. We have been here ever since. I realized that I was a UU without knowing it! I have finally found my spiritual home.”
Jill Carville
“We’re a church that doesn’t ask you to believe in any traditional religious beliefs if you don’t want to. Some of them believe in a God and some don’t.”
Joy F. Sokeitous
"A source of new liberal-minded friends was one of my goals. When looking to relocate from the Philadelphia area, I compared the distance of potential new homes to UUCFM's location.”
Joan Hickok
"A liberal religion compatible with my secular Jewish background is important to me."
Rose Klein
"I first found out about UU when attending a union leader talk at UU church in Detroit, Michigan."
Alice Forsyth
"This congregation has a wide variety of ages and people from all over the country. And, the campus is beautiful and the minister is young."
Gina Gottman
"I needed to find a new tribe when we moved here; a church is a family."
Jim Stout
"I love our beautiful Certified Wildlife Habitat campus, it is inspiring to see the native plants and the individual vegetable gardens planted by various members."
Bill Petrarca
"Having an open and loving community is important to me. Our faith is way ahead of its time, with the values we honor: Love, grow, serve."
Nancy Letts
"As a UU, my life underwent many changes. I found and nourished a deep connection to something greater than myself that I call Spirit, or Creator. I’m a grateful UU still committed to finding deeper meaning in my life and to acting on these expanding beliefs in ways that help myself and others."
