Love is Our Doctrine

Love is our doctrine,” were the first words of the covenant I grew up with as a Unitarian Universalist. Repeated week by week, I’ve probably said some version of the Griswold Williams covenant a couple of thousand times in my life. But what does it mean, to name love our doctrine? And what kind of love are we talking about anyway?

Join us as we explore what a faith, and a life, centered in love might invite.

Rev. Christopher Wulff is a fifth-generation Canadian Unitarian, who most recently served as Minister of the Westside UU Congregation in West Seattle. In his varied life he’s worked as a park ranger, a graphic designer and programmer, a counsellor for refugees and an advocate for people living in poverty, a professor of journalistic ethics, and a cook at a Unitarian Universalist retreat centre.

His lovely wife Ariel also grew up UU, and worked for the CUC for many years, and they have two young kiddos who are more interested in the snack table after church than in the service, but who are quickly picking up the hymns sung around the dinner table. Christopher is currently experimenting with various treatments to resolve a period of major depression and organizing with folks to launch a new network of UU communities in Vancouver modelled after house churches and revivals.

All services are currently both in person and via Zoom at 11:00 a.m. To join any of our upcoming services on Zoom, please click on this SERVICE LINK a few minutes before the service.
