All Souls Ecumenical Church
Type: Religious
An Independent Catholic Church in the Anglican tradition,we are a diverse, welcoming, Christian community worshiping on the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month at 640 Centre Avenue in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Our primary outreach is to three groups:

+ first, to people who believe that the sacraments need to be valid in terms of historical Christian belief and apostolic succession, but who are no longer willing to attend a church that does not understand human brokenness and limits access to God;

+ second, to the gay and lesbian community who routinely feel unwelcome, disenfranchised or excluded from their former church home; and

+ third, to the increasing number of Christians who have no single tradition background from childhood and who feel they can comfortably be neither Roman Catholic nor Protestant.

ALL are welcome to join us and receive the sacraments of the church, including same sex marriage and gay & lesbian ordination. Our pastor is gay and partnered as is our bishop! Want to know more? Visit our website or come to be with us in worship. Curiosity and questioning are always welcome!

First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia
Type: Religious
We are Unitarian Universalists. Ours is an intentionally diverse religious community. We seek to be guided by the wisdom and experience of people of all genders, races, theologies, colors, classes, ages and sexual orientations. We are a wonderful mix of straight, gay, lesbian, trans, bi, young, old (and in between), and people of all colors. We have a great children's religious education program, so if you have kids, they'll be welcome too. Unitarian Universalism is a progressive, liberal faith. Our religious movement today is characterized by a commitment to diversity in community, respect for the individual's path to religious truth, and by a dedication to social justice as a means of living out our religious values. Our Seven Principles are to covenant and promote: 1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person. 2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations. 3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. 4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning. 5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. 6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. 7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence, of which we are a part. The Unitarian-Universalist approach to spirituality is fundamentally different from religion based on the idea of "creed" or a static concept of "revelation." We do not say that life's ultimate truth has been revealed in a particular scripture. We say that together we must seek to understand the meaning of our lives. We gather in a sense of wonder before the mystery of life. In our search we have the voices and visions of every period and place in the record of human experience from which to draw. We have the accumulated wisdom of humankind- reason, intuition, the arts and sciences, and our own life experience. We take the best of the teachings of all the great religions, as well as many other sources of inspirational writings, such as Walt Whitman, Gandhi, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or the Sufi Mystics, to name just a few sources. Please join us on Sundays at 11 a.m. in our Frank Furness-designed sanctuary at 2125 Chestnut Street. We believe you'll be glad you came to worship with us; we know we'll be glad you did.
