We Unitarian Universalists understand the urge to restore what once was. Nothing is more human. Who doesn’t want to reverse the damage? Who doesn’t hold on to the humpty dumpty hope that all can be put back together again? But our faith teaches us that this is just not how the world works. Transition and change rule the flow of life.

Trust

In religious circles, “trust talk” most often revolves around having faith that life will look after us. We UUs translate similar sentiments using the language of trusting “a Love that will not let us go.”  For us UUs, maybe it’s mostly about trusting that we’ll know which call is right for us.
