How might we practice and prepare the way for a communal spiritual exercise of “Why Not?”
Listen to this sermon:
August Theme: What does it mean to be a People of Possibility?
Possibility is central to Unitarian Universalist faith. While others saw humankind as fundamentally depraved, early Universalists saw a possibility for redemption in everyone. While many saw the suffering of life as payment for eternal happiness in heaven, early Unitarians saw the possibility of heaven on earth. The early Christian Unitarians and Universalists believed in a good God who wanted the best for us. God would not give up on us, so we should not give up on God. Perhaps this makes us a religion of “Why not?”
