Seeing that we are compassed round by so great a cloud of witnesses, the great of past and present and all the humble heroes who worked and sacrificed beside them, who, indeed, held up their hands and made strong their voices, let us now, in our own day, lay aside every weight of selfishness and fear and take up with faith and joy the urgent tasks to which this historic hour has summoned us. Let us together build the free and universal church of tomorrow.

—UUA Service of Consolidation, May 23, 1960


From the worship service celebrating the vote by the joint assemblies of the Universalist Church of America and the American Unitarian Association to create the Unitarian Universalist Association. The UUA was born May 15, 1961; it will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary this summer. See sidebar for links to related resources.
