UU World is a quarterly publication of the Unitarian Universalist Association that is provided free as a benefit to voting members of congregations. The magazine descends from a long line of Unitarian and Universalist publications going back almost two centuries: Universalist Magazine was founded in 1819 and the Unitarian Christian Register in 1821.

UU World‘s mission is to help its readers build their faith and act on it more effectively in their personal lives, their congregations, their communities, and the world. To this end, it strives to be not only informative but also useful, provocative, and even prophetic.

The UUA is pleased to announce that audio recordings of selected UU World articles are now available for online listening or downloading.

UU World‘s current issue and archives can be read on the award-winning online companion site, uuworld.org: liberal religion and life, which is updated with news and original content each week.

If you are not receiving UU World, check with your congregation. Updates to the UU World subscription list can be made directly by your congregation’s administrator (find out how by clicking here). If you are not a voting member of a UUA congregation but would like to receive the magazine, click here to subscribe.

The Fall 2012 issue of UU World (pictured above) features a story about the religious upbringing of U.S. President Barack Obama. His grandparents and mother attended East Shore Unitarian Church in Bellevue, WA, and when the young Barack lived with his grandparents in Hawaii, he attended religious education classes at the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu.
