History

Building full horizontal.jpg

All Faiths was founded in February 2001, when a number of people, along with minister The Rev. Dr. Wayne Robinson, met to begin the organization of a liberal religious entity. 

The name ALL FAITHS was selected because the founders wanted to include people of many faiths. The word “Unitarian” was chosen because many had a previous Unitarian Universalist connection. The term “Congregation” was added out of respect for members who came from backgrounds other than Christian and would be uncomfortable with the word “church.

  

Sunday services began in September 2001, and were held at Dunbar Middle School.  In April 2002, All Faiths began meeting at The Alliance for the Arts and in October 2006, services moved to The Crestwell School in South Fort Myers.  

 

In March 2010, the Trinity Community Church building at 2756 McGregor Boulevard was purchased and updated to accommodate our growing congregation. Finally, in March of 2011, All Faiths Unitarian Congregation became official members of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. 

Our beautiful property is located near the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. We honor and greet the ancestors and descendants of the Calusa people, whose land we are grateful to call our home. We honor their legacy.

Inside you'll find...

this large glass sculpture “We Are Each Other’s Keepers” which was commissioned for All Faiths Unitarian Congregation of Fort Myers, Florida, and installed in 2012. The sculpture is mounted at the front of the sanctuary in a steel frame that hangs four inches off the wall and is backlit with LED light strips, making it glow from the inside. 

   

“As humans, we are all connected to each other, to the earth, to the rest of the universe and time,” artist Susan Gott writes. The sculpture’s “torus” rings are “a symbol of infinity, the cosmos, and spirit. The human figures, faces, and spirals are symbolic of the mystery of our interconnected life force and are the heart of the spiritual meaning of the artwork.”

​  

The sculpture was commissioned by a member of the congregation, the late Joseph Kotler, after hearing a sermon by the Rev. Dr. Wayne A. Robinson entitled “We are Each Other’s Keepers.”  Over 30 artists from around the country entered submissions.
