Why Join?

There are many good reasons. The first is spiritual. In the words of the Rev. William Murry (RRUUC's minister from 1981 to 1997), "It means that you believe and are committed to the principles, values and life attitudes that Unitarian Universalism embraces. It is signifying publicly that you stand with a group of people who have a particular outlook on life and religion, and it is a commitment to walk with those people and to support this congregation and what we stand for. Spiritually, joining this congregation is an act of self-definition and commitment to an ongoing journey of self-discovery."

Another is a more practical, institutional reason: Only members can vote. While this does not affect most of our week-to-week experience at RRUUC, when important decisions need to be made, you may want to have your say. You can do this officially only if you are a member.
