Sacred Space

What benefits might we find if we free the idea of sacred space from our places of worship and take it with us into the world? Each of us has some place that is sacred. It might be in a forest or out fishing on the lake. It could be soaking in the tub or playing in a band. What makes a place sacred and how can more sacredness improve our lives?

Betty Skwarek recently graduated from Meadville Lombard Theological School and is a candidate for Unitarian Universalist ministry. She brings many years of experience in Unitarian Universalist congregations to her ministry which is focused on taking our faith into parts of central and west Texas where people don’t know us but are looking for religious alternatives like those we offer. She completed her ministerial internship here at Live Oak in May of 2014.

Unitarian Univeralism

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.
