Besides trying to live by our Principles, including the freedom to engage in our own personal search for truth and meaning in life (and spirituality), we are inspired to:

  • Feel better about ourselves and treat others better in spite of a world that sometimes seems unworthy – see what members have said
  • Express ourselves in community through song, the sharing of joys and sorrows, and having a personal connection to others, which gives us personal and spiritual growth.
  • Do what inspires us and gives us hope:
    • Work toward racial justice and ending all oppression
    • Help feed the hungry with our Oxon Hill Food Pantry initiative
    • Learn and teach about having hope for our world and the future through religious education programs
    • Support other causes and get support to help your cause through our Social Action Committee
  • Belong to a community of people of different ages (unlike many other organizations that are adult-only – children help us feel younger and keep us connected to the next generation)
  • A place to bring your children and grandchildren where they can explore their beliefs about life’s big questions, learn about various beliefs and about decision-making, and be a part of a loving, caring community.
  • A place where you can feel comfortable, not negatively judged when you’re not doing anything to hurt anyone else, and be a part of a loving, caring community.
