Prairie Unitarian Universalist Society
Prairie Unitarian Universalist Society is a freethinking religious community in Madison. We aspire to be both open-hearted and open-minded. We welcome those who enter our doors with any combination of strengths and weaknesses, beliefs and doubts. Our children undertake liberal religious exploration as we model values in our search for truth and meaning.
Prairie is a small, lay-led liberal congregation currently in the process of seeking a minister. The congregation is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Members hold differing religious beliefs, but our shared principles affirm the worth and dignity of all persons, the need for justice and compassion, a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and a respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. As UUs, we believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason should be the final authorities in religion.
We are a Welcoming Congregation that opens our Sunday morning services with words similar to the following: “We welcome people of every ethnic and religious background, whatever your color, sexual orientation, or family structure.” LGBTQ members and allies have a group called Interweave for mutual support and activism.
