About Don Heights Unitarian Congregation

Vision

Don Heights is a resilient, welcoming community of diverse individuals, promoting love, reason and freedom of religion, fostering lifelong spiritual growth and acting for social justice and the environment.

We are a religious community embracing a common faith expressed by our commitment to the Unitarian/Universalist Principles and Purposes.

Our Motto is: Freedom in religion; Justice in action.

Mission

(Our Mission grows out of our Vision statement describing our purpose; our job in the world.)

Through open dialogue and exchange of ideas, Don Heights creates a safe, supportive religious community which celebrates and nurtures individuals on their diverse journeys. We respect the interdependence of all existence and demonstrate our Unitarian principles in the wider community by working for peace, justice and equality for all.

“Resilient, Welcoming Community”
We exist to maintain a community of conscientious Unitarians working in shared ministry to create a welcoming atmosphere, and to work for the human rights of all people who are oppressed or left out.

“Diverse Individuals”
We exist to honour and appreciate human differences in all aspects, and in particular differences of age, culture, race, socio-economic levels, sexual orientation and ability.

“Promoting Love”
We exist to understand and promote all forms of love, agape, empathy, non-cliquish, unconditional, compassionate, non-judgmental, touching the heart.

“Promoting Reason”
We exist for the exchange of ideas, to provide opportunities for exploration, to promote open-mindedness, dialogue, life-long learning, engaging the intellect, and questioning.

“Promoting Freedom of Religion”
We exist to promote understanding for differing theological orientations, to encourage interfaith respect, alliances and advocacy, to be open to spiritual mysteries in whatever forms.

“Fostering Life-long Spiritual Growth”
We exist to support the freedom of individuals to change their spiritual perspectives, searching for meaning, ethical awareness, and purpose-filled life.

“Acting for Social Justice and the Environment”
We exist to walk our talk, fighting for equality, using our resources to reflect our social justice values and to advocate for positive change.

Who we are part of:

We are part of the Canadian Unitarian Council.

We have a common vision of Unitarianism in Canada and beyond our borders of the one world we all share. We are also connected to American Unitarians and internationally to the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists.

We are an established faith and will be celebrating 450 years in 2018.
