I did some internet research and found that there are Unitarian Universalists who identify as Christian. Let me state upfront that I realize some Christians judge as non-Christian anyone who does not belief in the holy Trinity. However, I wouldn’t worry too much about that. Throughout my lifetime I have noticed how quick Christians normally are to judge as non-Christian anyone who disagrees with them on some principle or other. On the website of the Unitarian Universalist Christian FellowshipI found the following:

The UUCF especially ministers to those who feel they are too UU to be Christian and too Christian to be UU.

Regarding beliefs, from their Beliefs page I copy the following quotes:

  • Members of the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship, like many Christians, and many Unitarian Universalists, hold a variety of religious and spiritual beliefs.
  • Most Unitarian Universalist Christians vary in their opinions about the relationship of Jesus to God.
  • Regardless of what an individual “believes,” what most Unitarian Universalist Christians would agree on is that learning from the example of Jesus and studying Scripture for its wisdom is at the heart of their faith.

Go to the link for more information.

As for what they are, from the UUCF History section I find they:

  • are in relationship with the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and…in communication and relationship with UU Christians around the globe.
  • hope this website will allow you to go deeper into the ancient, living and thriving tradition of Christianity based on freedom and not dogma.
  • trust that if you are drawn to participate in the UUCF, the Holy Spirit is leading you in the right direction!

Their tagline is “Freely following Jesus.” More links appear on the same page but enough is in this post for interested parties to look it up themselves.
