Becoming the religious people we want to be
It is important to be honest about our complicated history, not to bring shame or guilt, but to bring understanding that can inform our faith today.
The touchstone of community
It’s going to take all of us to move our world, and our faith, forward in the ways of truth, compassion, and justice.
The practice of our faith
This is no time for a casual faith. And we Unitarian Universalists must remember that we are not in this alone.
Tell me about where you come from
We bring a lot to the relationships and communities we join. So, let me tell you a little about where I come from.
Making this a time of opportunity
From the interim co-presidents: We are committed to making this a time of opportunity and not merely a troubled time to be survived.
Sanctuary and gospel
As religious people we have two essential tasks: we must offer sanctuary and preach our gospel.
The fear that surrounds us
Have you ever tried to argue someone out of their racism, their climate change denial, their homophobia? It never works.
Catharsis ≠ progress
I worry that we will fall victim to the progressive habit of declaring victory too early.
The future of liberal religion is multifaith
Religious liberals from all traditions share not only common values, but also a common cosmology.
Way is opening
More than once, my attempts to stick to my dream prevented me from seeing other doors that were open all around me.
Renew your spirit
I urge you to make some space to reflect on what your spirit needs right now.
A mixture of triumph and pain
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.
