In the midst of so many uncertainties about the future of our nation and our planet, it is more important than ever to take stock of our blessings and to recommit ourselves to the core values of our Unitarian Universalist faith. We can be grateful for the gracious, life-affirming principles that animate our faith: “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” . . . “justice, equity and compassion in human relations” . . . “the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in our congregations and in society at large” . . . “the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Now, as always, let us recommit to live by these principles—to proclaim them in the public square and to stand in solidarity with any whose worth and dignity are threatened.
We wish you and yours a restorative and festive Thanksgiving.
