What is Unitarian Universalism?
 
Unitarian Universalism (UU) originates from liberal Christianity.  Subsequently, with increasing inclusiveness towards the world's religions, UU has evolved beyond Christianity into a free religion which welcomes members of all faiths.  According to a survey, about half of the more than 200 000 adherents of the Unitarian Universalist Associaiton in USA identified themselves as humanists, one-third called themselves agnostics, 18% are atheists, 17% Buddhists, Christians only 13% (can select more than one choice, so add up to more than 100%).
 
 
What is Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong?
 
Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong is the only Unitarian Universalist community in Hong Kong.  We consist of Chinese and non-Chinese members and our activities are often bi-lingual---English and Cantonese.  Please check Calender for our latest gatherings.
 

Mission statement of Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong:
 
Unitarian Universalists Hong Kong is a sharing, nurturing, and caring community which promotes spiritual growth and development along with intellectual freedom. We provide an atmosphere of acceptance of one another while seeking to understand ourselves and our universe.
 
We foster an ethical basis for living and celebrate in life's diversity. We reaffirm our respect for others which empowers us to act on our beliefs to improve our community and relieve social injustice.

甚麼是 Unitarian Universalism?
 
Unitarian Universalism (UU) 源出於基督教自由派,即基督教中思想較開明的一派,接受現代哲學思潮及科學發現對傳統教義及聖經的批判,肯定其他世界宗教的地位及價值。由於對世界宗教的包容度不斷增加,發展至今,UU 已脫離基督教,成為一個獨立於基督教的開明宗教,即包容及歡迎任何宗教(或無宗教)人士參與。根據一項統計,在美國 UU 協會的廿多萬名會員中,有接近一半自稱人文主義者、三分一為不可知論者、18% 是無神論者、佛教徒佔 17% 、基督徒 13%(可選多於一項,故總和高於 100%)。
 
 
甚麼是「尋道會」?
 
尋道會是香港唯一的 UU 群體。我們的會員包括華人及非華人;我們的活動多以雙語—英語及廣東話—進行。想知道我們最新的聚會詳情,請參閱 Calender(活動時間表)。
 
 
尋道會的使命宣言:
 
尋道會是一個互相分享、培育、關懷的群體。她鼓勵靈性的成長及求知自由。我們提供互相接納的環境幫助會員尋找對自我及宇宙的理解。
 
我們培養生活的道德基礎及讚嘆生命的多元性。我們肯定對他人的尊重;此尊重驅使我們基於我們的信念以行動改善我們的社區及減輕社會的不公義。

我們需要以新的方式討論「信」與「不信」。
我們需要一個務實、充滿慈愛、連無神論者也喜愛的開明宗教。
We need new ways to talk about belief and unbelief.
We need a realistic and loving liberal religion that even an Atheist can love.
