Our Beliefs & Values
No single religious text. No ten commandments. No creed to which you must agree. Ours is a religious philosophy that believes religious values should fit individuals, rather than individuals all being made to fit into one single religious "box." We are fond of saying, "The whole world is our sacred text." This respect for individual particularity and openness to diverse sources of wisdom means our community is packed with a wide array of perspectives and beliefs. This diversity excites us. It's not always easy to deal with so many different views, but it leaves us richer than any of us could be on our own. The links on this page offer you a taste of our diversity, but also some of the core values and principles that enable us to feel both "many and one."
