As UUs at the UUSMV, we share common principles and a mission to foster community action and social justice, but our beliefs are divergent. What do you believe? Inspired by the This I Believe® international organization, the UUSMV worship committee invites you to vulnerably and authentically connect with each other by listening and sharing in this service and talk-back. Please contact Jennifer Knight if you would like to share your own or read someone else’s essay as a part of the service.
“This I Believe® is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Over 125,000 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life, have been archived here on our website, heard on public radio, chronicled through our books, and featured in weekly podcasts. The project is based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow.” thisibelieve.org
