Description:

The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism continue to be plumbed for meaning, depth and inspiration. This elegant volume presents fresh perspectives from seven ministers who joined the ministry after the Principles took their current form. Here are essays, prayers, chalice lightings, litanies, meditations and worship readings on each Principle-helping us reflect on their significance and the ways they call us to ethical action and deeper spirituality.

Praise for Seven Principles in Word and Worship:

"Turning words like "truth," "dignity," "democratic process" and "equity" into the life and breath of reflection and worship is a daunting assignment. Ellen Brandenburg has assembled a diverse group of young Unitarian Universalist ministers to tackle exactly that. They do our Principles proud." --Jane Rzepka, Senior Minister, Church of the Larger Fellowship
