Who Are We?

Cape Town Unitarians is a spiritual community that is founded upon the universal truths found in most religions. We focus on the spiritual component of our lives, without the necessity of believing a specific dogma.

Many in our spiritual community hold different beliefs, but we are able to come together to encourage and support each other on our individual spiritual path. 

 

Our seven principles: 

  1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

  2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

  3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

  4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;

  7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Our Six Sources:

We look to many different sources for our spiritual inspiration:

  1. Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;

  2. Words and deeds of prophetic people which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;

  3. Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;

  4. Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;

  5. Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit;

  6. Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.
