WHEN the Unitarians and Universalists formerly agreed to union to form the UUA, they had a ceremony of Unitarians & Universalists coming together singing this Hymn:

"As Tranquil Streams "

As tranquil streams that meet and merge and flow as one to seek the sea,

Our kindred hearts and minds unite to build a church that shall be free.

Free from the bonds that bind the mind to narrow thought and lifeless creed;

Free from a social code that fails to serve the cause of human need:

A freedom that reveres the past, but trusts the dawning future more;

And bids the soul, in search of truth, adventure boldly and explore.

Prophetic church, the future waits your liberating ministry;

Go forward in the power of love, proclaim the truth that makes us free
With love,

Rev Dorris
