Welcome!

We are a liberal religious congregation and a dynamic, caring community. We value the inherent worth and dignity of each person, regardless of who you are or whom you love, your family or personal circumstances, or the path your faith calls you to walk.

Unitarian Universalism is an open-minded religion which encourages people to seek their own spiritual path. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. At GNUUC, you can nurture your spirit and put your faith into action to create a just and compassionate world.

"You Must Be Present to Win: Why Coming out of Hiding is the First/Last Step of Spiritual Living"

The first question God poses to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is this, "Where are you?" The same question is posed to each of us at every moment: Where are you? Where are you in your life, in your ability to respond to self and others, in your capacity to respond to God? Rabbi Rami will lead us into the question and how we might respond to it.

Challenged by Joshu Sasaki Roshi to be a zen rabbi in 1973, ordained as a Reform rabbi in 1981, earned a doctorate in religious studies in 1985, welcomed as a rebbe by Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi in 2000, made a 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason in 2010, and initiated into the Ramakrishna Order of Vedanta Hinduism in 2011, Rabbi Rami is a world renowned lecturer and author of over thirty books who has been bringing the perennial wisdom of the world's religions to spiritual seekers of every faith and none for over forty years.


Ken Sizemore — Sunday, July 12


 “Songs of Hope for a Better World”          

Though much of the news we hear these days from around the world and here at home is bad news, we Unitarian Universalists know that it is important to keep on trying to make things a little better each day, in our communities and on our planet. Folksinger Ken Sizemore will perform songs that embody hopefulness and optimism, and give us some tangible sounds and lyrics to encourage us to keep on fighting the good fight.

Ken Sizemore, who lived here in Nashville for about 30 years before moving with his wife, Susie, to Panama City, Florida in 1999, has been a Unitarian Universalist for almost 40 year. A performer of folk music for more than 50 years, and a musical partner of deceased GNUUC member Judith Lovin for two decades, Ken draws much of his material from the classic folk music of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. He travels and performs in many venues all over the southeast, and while he loves playing music in any setting, Ken’s favorite “gig” is playing for Unitarian Universalists.
