To that aim, we believe that there is no restriction in Sacred Scripture that requires only One Way of doing things. God is not limited by our conventions. We can only understand God through the limits of our Humanity and those limits will produce different understandings of God. We use Inclusive words in our Masses and religious services as we move away from Gender language.
Anglicans believe in via media, the middle way. The UAC has no doctrinal purity tests that one must pass to be accepted. We believe that there are many paths that one may take to find the comfort, peace and joy that God provides for our human experience.
As such, each UAC clergy member is allowed to conduct religious and sacramental services in a manner that best captures his or her experience with God. We have clergy from many denominations and traditions who felt the call to join with us because they felt the need to be more inclusive and open to God’s presence in their lives.
It takes strength and courage to say:
“We don’t have all the answers, but we will share the journey with you.”
