    Voices from #MLS2015: Radiating Love

    Guest blogger Sunshine Alvarez attended the Unitarian Universalist Association Multicultural Leadership School this July. Sunshine belongs to the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. -ed. On July 10th, I had the opportunity to attend a Multicultural Leadership School (MLS) in Boston, Massachusetts for the second time. This was hands down the best part of my summer. MLS is a program supported by the UUA, and at this school I spent five days with youth, such as myself, and young adults of color. There are a lot of challenges growing up as a Black young adult and just growing up being a young adult of color, period, so it felt great to connect with people who were…

    Youth Observer 2015-2016 Caleb Leman

    In His Own Words by Caleb Leman I want to serve this faith because I believe that the elusive goals of happiness and truth are much easier obtained with the support of trust and love through human connection.   Our Unitarian Universalist (UU) faith offers a unique community that makes profound impacts on how people think and act. Growing up, I went through many different Religious Education curricula and with each class learned more about what I believe. For example, an ongoing discussion in my youth group is on the subjectivity of morality, which continues to push me to keep an open mind and seek to understand why I believe what I believe. The open…

    Youth Observer 2015-2016 Olivia Calvi

    In Her Own Words By Olivia Calvi Growing up Unitarian Universalist, I felt a lot of pressure to figure out what my beliefs were.
