And Natural Extension of Unitarian Unversalist Core Values


Talkin’ ’bout unconditional love, equality and justice –

This is one way Unitarian Universalist congregations engage their community: When two young adults realized that homeless young adults were falling through the cracks Sam Greenberg and Sarah Rosenkrantz determined to open a shelter to help them find a path forward. When they decided to do something about it, First Parish in Cambridge, MA determined to help by hosting the shelter dedicated to homeless young adults (between the ages of 18 and 24) during the coldest months of the year.

Said Rev. Fred Small, the senior minister at First Parish, “Their proposal was very exciting, because it’s a natural extension of the core values of my congregation: unconditional love, equality, and justice.”
