Bible Literacy for UUs: Our Seven Principles and the Bible

bibleWe may see the UUA Seven Principles and the Bible as opposite ends of a religious and cultural spectrum. Yet two of our sources are connected with the Bible. In this series, we will focus on each of the sev?en principles along with related contemporary readings and selected Bible passages. What do our principles and sources mean to us?  How do the Bible’s teachings support or contradict our liberal values? Can we deepen our own liberal faith through considering and discussing these relationships.
