“To envy or be jealous of another’s skills, looks, or gifts rather than embracing your own nature and call is to fail in two respects. In trying unsuccessfully to be who we aren’t, we fail to become who we are.” This sentiment is from Forrest Church, minister of All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in NYC for thirty years. The Youth Group will explore the topic of envy and jealousy as they lead this coming Sunday’s service.
April Theme: Wholeness
We Unitarian Universalists understand the urge to restore what once was. But our faith teaches us that this is just not how the world works. Transition and change rule the flow of life. And so the wholeness offered us is not that of returning our lives to their original state but working with what remains to make something new.
