Practicing Gratitude This Holiday Season: A Message from UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray

However you celebrate, holidays and rituals are an invitation for reflection. They remind us of our past, and they also invite us to be attentive to the present moment. Practicing gratitude helps us all to be intentional in naming the gifts that surround us, reminding us that we are loved and we all share a fundamental interdependence.

How are you caring for your spirit?

It is essential that we find ways to breathe life into that which reminds us of our power, our humanity, our compassion, and our interdependence.
