In our search for truth and meaning, we draw from many sources. This past Sunday, the 9:15 discussion group pondered what truth and meaning each of us has drawn from the world’s religions. We have, it seems, gradually grown in understanding and caring from exploring such sources.
The 10:00 Wednesday discussion group, examining the history of mid-1800s Universalism and Unitarianism, identified a similar growth process. Exposed to the world’s religions, both denominations began to see the necessity of helping people grow in understanding and caring even for those we don’t know.
As we move into a new presidency and hundreds and thousands of years of division, isn’t this still the challenge – to repair the breach – by weaving it together with understanding and caring.
