Unitarian Universalist Principles (Modified for Children)

Children at ServiceThere are many misconceptions about Unitarian Universalists. One is that we embrace all beliefs; another is that we embrace no beliefs. The truth lies somewhere in between. The fact is that, as Unitarian Universalists, we are united in our commitment to conduct a responsible search for meaning, to respect the interdependent web of existence that we are part of, to be advocates and workers for social justice, and to honor the inherent worth of all beings. As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm and promote seven principles.

These seven UU principles have been modified for children 

  1. Each person is important.
  2. Be kind in all you do.
  3. We're free to learn together.
  4. We search for what is true.
  5. All people need a voice.
  6. Build a fair and peaceful world.
  7. We care for Earth's lifeboat. 

Spirit Play has added color coded to them

  1. Respect All People (Red Promise )
  2. Offer kind and fair treatment to all (Orange Promise)
  3. Grow by Exploring What is True and Right (Green Promise)
  4. Believe in our Ideas and Act on Them (Blue Promise)
  5. Yearn to Accept and Learn About Ourselves and Others (Yellow Promise)
  6. Insist on Freedom, Justice, and Peace for all People (Indigo Promise)
  7. Value our home, Earth, that we share with all living beings (Violet Promise)
