The UUA General Assembly in Portland, Oregon, contained a mixture of triumph and pain that reflects the state of our movement and the state of America.
The future health of Unitarian Universalism depends on all of us learning to embrace failure.
We progressives are prone to believing progress is a lot easier than it is.
Opportunities are always there
Thriving congregations have leaders who seize the opportunities before them rather than cling to plans that are no longer viable.
Our house, unequally divided
Inequality has reached such toxic levels that it corrupts our relationships and threatens our democracy.
One simple, transformative practice
A search for connection is at the heart of all spiritual traditions and practices.
Belief is the enemy of faith
A new interfaith, multifaith spirituality is struggling to be born.
What Unitarian Universalists want
Unitarian Universalists share a profound sense of what we cherish and what we want to become.
Learning to trust
To create deep and enduring relationships, our love must develop into mutual trust.
