What we say is important. How we say it is also. – Rev. John Mark Hild

By taking care with our language and messaging concerning gender, race, class, age, physical abilities, nationality, theological beliefs, culture, lifestyle, and the other ways that we describe and categorize humans, we affirm and empower all people and we hold as truth that we are all magnificently created and beloved by God. I try to recognize […]

Articulate the Truth – Rev. Gary R. Weaver

We are living in a time when the line between fact and falsehood, truth and lie is becoming increasingly blurred and confusing, especially when we cease to be intellectually vigilant and morally faithful. Every day, it seems, our integrity is being challenged, our sympathies are becoming numb, our commitment to justice is waning from the […]

We Were Made for Such Times As These – Rev. Simon Shadowlight

“Often it is only in our extreme need that we are willing to stop struggling with life and give God an opportunity. The Bible does not treat these truths in a lukewarm fashion, but is always dramatic in presenting them. Therefore we find that Abraham’s test of faith required a most radical reliance on God. […]

To Wholly Return to God – Rev. Pedro Silva

I recently realized that I feel safer in cars that look like I can afford them. How I realized this was that I had to rent a car. I had a coupon that enabled me to get a compact for the same price as an economy and I jumped on it. But, when I got […]

The Best of Who We Are – Rev. Wendy Jones

As a Unitarian Universalist minister, so many times my congregants come in to talk to me and ask what they can do to positively impact this crazy world we find ourselves in. I usually end up giving them all the same answer. We change the world by stepping into the best of who we are. And […]

Stand Up and Show Your Soul – Rev. Jyoti DeVernie

“Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It […]

The Silence of Humility – Shared by Rev. Bill Calhoun

Humility seeks silence not in inactivity but in ordered activity, in the activity that is proper to our poverty and helplessness before God. Humility goes to pray and finds silence through words. Even when it speaks, humility listens. The words of humility are so simple, so gentle and so poor that they find their way […]

Only Love by Rev. Brigette Weier

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” This passage from the scriptures of my faith tradition, Christianity, reorients me each time I read it to what my life’s work is about, love. Love is the basis of all the major faith traditions in our world. Love of God, Allah, Yahweh […]
