The Challenge to the Global Community of Religions

"In this new ecological age of developing global community and interfaith dialogue, the world religions face what is perhaps the greatest challenge that they have ever encountered. Each is inspired by a unique vision of the divine and has a distinct cultural identity. At the same time, each perceives the divine as the source of unity and peace. The challenge is to preserve their religious and cultural uniqueness without letting it operate as a cause of narrow and divisive sectarianism that contradicts the vision of unity and peace. It is a question of whether the healing light of religious vision will overcome the social and ideological issues that underline much of the conflict between religions."

-- Dr. Steven C. Rockefeller, Middlebury College, Spirit and Nature, p. 169

Our Philosophy | Our Network | Lightweavers | Namaste

Our Philosophy
The explosive growth of the global Internet provides a uniquely significant opportunity for intercultural network development. In a world where religious differences are too often the cause of tragedy and warfare, United Communities of Spirit works to provide a forum where people of good will from every culture and faith tradition can come together, learn from one another, and develop a shared understanding that can inspire and uplift the world.

We have no one single agenda and no inherent ideology -- other than mutual respect and a deeply-felt concern for the welfare of life on this planet. We are open to anyone who wishes to work with us, and take no one position on the classical truths of religion. Members are entirely free to disagree on matters of ideology, but come together in a common spirit of friendship and respect.

Our Network
The UCS network system is a "community development" tool, operating at both global and local levels. It is intended to serve a wide variety of overlapping objectives. These include:

UCS members are bonded by no single ideology other than mutual respect. But we also offer networking tools to those of us who hold to the common ideology expressed in this Credo:

We believe that the spiritual transformation of global culture can arise through a cooperative network system, that brings together into one linked context the highest insights of all religions, and coordinates the participation of millions of people.
For us, the ancient Sanskrit blessing Namaste! is a perfect expression. It translates as
I honour the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honour the place in you which is of Love, of Truth, of Light, and of Peace. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, We are One.
