Unitarian Universalism with a Texas Accent

The French use a term, terroir, to indicate that where a certain wine, coffee bean, or other product came from affects its character. That applies to religion, too -- Unitarian Universalism in Texas just isn’t the same as Unitarian Universalism in Boston. Come join 7th generation Texan, Rev. Joanna Fontaine Crawford, as we examine what Texas Unitarian Universalism looks (and sounds) like.

Theological Diversity in Unitarian Universalism

Unitarian Universalism welcomes people with diverse beliefs. There is a rich dialogue in our congregations about many spiritual topics. In addition to holding different beliefs on spiritual topics, individual Unitarian Universalists may also identify with and draw inspiration from Atheism and Agnosticism, Buddhism, Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Paganism, and other religious or philosophical traditions.

Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA)

Live Oak is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) which is a voluntary association of autonomous, self-governing local churches and fellowships, which have freely chosen to pursue common goals together. The Association's polity is congregational; Association decisions are made by congregational delegates in business sessions at the annual General Assembly.

Southwestern Unitarian Universalist Conference (SWUUC)

Live Oak UU Church is a member of the Southwestern Unitarian Universalist Conference (SWUUC), known also as the Southwest District. The Southwest District serves seventy-eight congregations in an area which includes most of Texas (excluding the El Paso area); all of Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana; Memphis, TN; Springfield, MO; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; and several emerging congregations in Mexico.

Unitarian Universalist Churches in the Austin Area

The greater Austin area supports a number of UU congregations. These are the websites for some of the churches:

U Bar U Retreat Center

U Bar U is a Unitarian Universalist Retreat and Conference Center in the rugged ranch land of the Texas Hill Country near Kerrville, Texas. Their mission is to provide a welcoming, peaceful place to gather for spiritual, educational, and recreational purposes in harmony with our Unitarian Universalist Principles and The Land.

Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF)

The Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF) is a Unitarian Universalist congregation without walls. Our 3,500 members, with their children, live all over the world. What brings them together is the desire to connect, seek, share and grow. You are welcome here whether you are a CLF member or not.

Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonsectarian organization that advances human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. UUSC envisions a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights.
