I always enjoy reading the president’s column in the UU World magazine. I don’t always agree, but I do enjoy reading it. I like getting a sense for where the UUA President is. So, where in the UU world is Peter Morales, president of the UUA?
In the Spring 2010 issue, now online, Morales writes about our “getting religion.” He calls our attention to the questions we ask.
…when we ask one another what we truly love, what we truly value, what we care about more than anything else in life, something amazing happens. We don’t argue. We listen. We connect. We discover that we love and want the same things. We care about one another. We want honesty, depth, and intimacy in our relationships. We want enduring friendships.
This is right in synch with what I’ve been preaching in my “Unitarian Universalism Unleashed” sermon. When explaining what we are about, we need to emphasis our coming together around what we love, what we value. Far too often I think we complicate what we are about, confuse people, and suffer as a result. We need this level of clarity.
