Unitarian Universalism encourages our curiosity. As a church we love to hear people express their truth. We treat opportunities to hear from folks whose theologies differ from ours as new chances to encounter the Holy. These are learning moments, and we cherish the gift to hear someone else’s formulations of what they find to be of Ultimate Concern.
The words of Rev Lisa Ward express it best. “We need to be willing to engage our knowing.” We need to explore what gives us a sense of wonder and compel that wonder to inspire our lives. “How do we relate to the world around us and does it follow our sense of truth? What gives us our strength of life? What affirmations do we have to engage ourselves in this world?” Theological literacy and spiritual practice are vital for the health of religious communities.
When we address these questions in community, in conversation with one another, with nature, science and society, informed by our Unitarian Universalist tradition, we begin to live richly as religious people practicing theology and perfecting our lives. May we always be so engaged in the search with one another.
So May It Be,
Reverend Scott Sammler-Michael
