UU Love is a double or even triple entendre.
- By UULove I invite you to love yourself (U love U).
- I also make reference to the faith in which I’m a minister, Unitarian Universalism (or UU). Unitarians were independent thinking Protestants who worked hard in their search for religious truth, developing a non-creedal faith. Universalists believed that God loved each of us too much to condemn us to hell. UULove from that perspective focuses on the message of love conveyed by the new post Christian faith that came out of the merger of these two traditions.
- The triple entendre comes from my deep love of the UU faith, which confidently states “we do not have to think alike to love alike.”
