It is important to understand that our spirit is rooted in and affected by what we believe. What we focus our life on, we become connected to. If our beliefs are founded only on the physical and material world, then we also will be natural and materialistic. But if we can look to what is higher and greater than ourselves, such as the Intelligence behind the creation, then you will connect to the Spirit of that Creator.
We at B.U. encourage each person to explore their beliefs, and to be personally connected to the Creator. This connection is what will anchor and renew our lives.This will bring peace and joy to the individual, which in turn brings personal strength and the fulfillment of life. It is this spiritual fulfillment that is the foundation of love and respect for ourselves and others. Together, we are able to share our unique perspectives with each other and expand our understanding. Creating a community of harmony that is safe, interesting, and encouraging.
We believe that the Bible is the guide to understanding this Intelligence and that the way we connect to our Creator is not through our action, but through our faith. However, we always remain open to dialogue and debate with all beliefs, and we encourage all people to come express, present, and further develop their own beliefs and philosophy.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
