    Our Emerging Faith Could Heal the World

    Covenants Are More than “Cool,” and Fitness Won’t Fix the World – Cherish the old, embrace the new, avoid the fads and heal the world – In April I got to go home for work. I don’t mean home to the house I share with my partner and housemates here in Boston. I mean back to the part of the country I say I’m from, back to the people who raised me and made me Unitarian Universalist (UU).  I went back to my childhood state, Illinois, to attend the MidAmerica Regional Assembly. Like many young adults, I’ve moved a lot. Since I first left home at age 17 I’ve lived in 5 different states and both…

    Why I Choose to Serve as a Leader

    An Exploration of Faith and Leadership I chose to serve as a leader in Unitarian Universalism (UU) because of the community, and encouragement of spiritual seeking. I consistently find myself in communities filled with Unitarian Universalists. It is in these communities that I feel most welcome and connected. From a Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice (UUCSJ) civil rights pilgrimage to youth caucus staff and Summer Seminary, I always feel embraced within Unitarian Universalism. Unitarian Universalism stands apart from many other religions as it encourages spiritual seeking and developing faith from many sources. This builds our community of seekers, each constantly revisiting, developing, and evolving our faith. Even though I do not identify as Christian,…
