The mission of Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is to promote spiritual growth, religious freedom, and ethical action.
We work together as a church to transform ourselves, our community, and our world by sharing love, pursuing justice, and seeking wonder.
We embrace diversity within the congregation’s membership and in theology. We are committed to being a vital and growing progressive congregation within our larger community.
What culture are we changing? How does sex ed relate to our Seven Principles? And why should we care?
A variety of speakers including parents and educators both from our church and from the community will share why responsible, inclusive sexuality education is important to them--and us. We are being the change we want to see in the world.
Soap Box Sunday is an annual service held the Sunday nearest the 4th of July. In opening the floor to speakers, the congregation is celebrating an American tradition - Freedom of Speech -and putting into practice two principles set forth by the Unitarian Universalist Association:
We are seekers of truth and wisdom.
We believe in the inherent worth of all people and we honor each person and their right to speak
.We're an evolving religion and always on a search for our own truths.
