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.

“The Care and Feeding of Ministers”How do you best take care of your minister? How can members and friends of a congregation help their minister (and the congregation) to thrive? As GNUUC prepares to call its first-ever full-time settled minister, Rev. Rachel and members of the GNUUC board and search committee will reflect on the role of GNUUC's called minister - and what everyone can do to help ensure a successful ministry.
Following the service, board members will lead a conversation about the role of the minister in GNUUC's changing governance structure. If the service raises any questions for you, the board will be happy to address them during this conversation.

“Palm Sunday as Tragicomedy”The gospel narrative that presents Jesus’s “triumphal” entry into the city of Jerusalem has obvious comedic and ironic features, yet a traditional and popular rendering of Jesus’s acclimation and celebration by the crowds has given rise to a triumphalist vision of Christ that is contrary to the message being symbolized. We will explore this as it relates to the “mission” of the church and triumphalist yearnings found in other religious and secular visions.
Rev. Mark Forrester, D.Min. is the University Chaplain and Director of Religious Life at Vanderbilt.
