the Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church (CLUUC). Our mission is to
integrate the goals of the Living the Welcoming
Congregation initiative* into the ongoing life of our
faith community and beyond. We seek to build relationships and foster awareness

acceptance of LGBT identity in oneself and others;
understanding, respect, and dialogue among LGBT persons and the larger CLUUC community;
Help make the
world safe and equitable for members of the LGBT community.

individual; respecting, valuing, and celebrating diversity; and actively working
for peace, liberty, and justice in the
CLUUC community and beyond.
