“World community with peace, liberty, and justice for all” is a Unitarian Universalist Principle. And yet, there are Unitarian Universalists who choose to serve in the military in a variety of capacities. How do these things go together? How can these Unitarian Universalists claim to have a goal of peace when they work for an organization that trains for war?
After ordination as a Unitarian Universalist minister Robin plans to become active duty in the Navy as a chaplain. She graduated from Union Theological Seminary in May with concentrations in Inter-Religious Engagement and Ethics (specializing in Islamophobia and Racism). Robin is now joyfully a full-time intern at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church in Santa Monica.
