Welcome to Tree of Life Community
A Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Who Are We?
Sometimes at TLCUU we like to joke that we’re “The Church of I Don’t Know.” But it’s not really such a joke. Unlike most spiritual communities, we don’t claim to have the answers to great questions about the presence, absence, or nature of God, about what happens before or after life as we know it or about how the universe we are a part of came into being.
We recognize that each of us is on an individual voyage toward understanding and peace, and we have decided to travel together for this part of our journey, supporting each other in the directions we each feel called to go. Together we can explore ways to make our time here more productive, meaningful, and compassionate toward each other, toward the Earth, and toward ourselves.
To that end, we find the principles of Unitarian Universalism and Creation Spirituality useful in framing those questions and in respecting the directions each of us chooses to pursue. We might not know the answers to those ultimate questions, but we can help each other explore all the wonders and possibilities our Universe offers.
We hope you like what you see on these pages enough to come and get acquainted with us in person. We’d love to meet you and think you’ll like us.
