Sunday, 23 May, 2021: Love is the Doctrine

Our covenant, which is more than a hundred years old in one form or another, may be the only thread that runs through the last century of Unitarianism and Universalism essentially unchanged.

Love is the doctrine of this church,
The quest of truth is our sacrament,
and service is our prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve others in community,
To the end that all souls shall grow
Into harmony with creation,
Thus we do covenant with one another.

Lisa deGruyter will lead the service and share a bit of the last 40 years of UU history from her experience.

This service was postponed from Sunday, May 16.

We are excited to be returning to in-person meetings on May 23 after meeting virtually since March 2020. We are experimenting with a simultaneous Zoom of the service.. If you would like to participate by Zoom, please email westforkuu@gmail.com for details and a link.

Please Join Us for Worship.


Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m.  at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Children are welcome.  There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

Sunday, 21 March, 2021: Committed to What?

Today, conventional wisdom too often teaches that people who disagree with us are obstacles; we must coerce others to follow our wishes; happiness is supposed to come from getting exactly what we want. In contrast, the Dalai Lama asks us to treat others gently as sisters and brothers, even if they disagree with us; to love unconditionally; to reject self-centeredness, which he sees as the source of unhappiness.
