Celestial Lands The Religious Crossroads of Politics, Power, and Theology

In Honor of Memorial Day — UU Servicemember’s Devotional Project

“Each time I have to stand by the “Chaplain Corps” table strewn with religious and spiritual information for the National Guard Soldiers I support, I find myself yearning deeply for material that is representative of the open, diverse, nurturing, affirming and accepting ideas of the UU tradition…So many of our military service members are hungry for a community that allows them to develop and grow in a faith that fits who they are and what they believe.”

-Second Lieutenant Kelly Cummins, Chaplain Candidate

Not since 1942 has Unitarian Universalism provided resources to our service members or the chaplains who serve them. We are now seeking to publish a collection of materials that provides encouragement and comfort to Armed Service men and women in their times of need. Such a collection is an alternative to the usual religious literature that is readily and abundantly available to service members. Additionally, this collection would spread the word about our Unitarian Universalist values.

In order to begin publication of this handbook, we are seeking to raise $25,000 before June 30, 2009 to produce, manufacture and distribute 20,000 copies at no charge to service members, military chaplains, and military chapels.

So far, the UUA has raised $7,500 for this special project.
