The inherent worth and dignity of every person

For some folks, the unimaginable happened yesterday and for a lot of other folks, their world is bright and shiny today.

Unitarian Universalism has never been about winning the White House. It is an umbrella for everyone regardless of who they voted for. If that’s not true, what are we really? A social club?

Unitarian Universalism always been about our common goal of making the world better. For the UU Fellowship, it’s about the good we do and the good we’ll do in the future.

 

People need this church. They needed it on Monday and they need it today.

See, we bring hope to folks who are just trying to hold on when we show up with food on the third Friday of every month. Or welcome the homeless as we take our turns staffing shelters when winter sets in. It’s about offering sanctuary to immigrants and so much more.

These aren’t liberal or conservative values. They are our values as Unitarian Universalists. We welcome, and always have, everyone. Everyone. We don’t care what color you are or who you voted for. Check out our beliefs and the promises we’ve made as UU’s and look for the words “Republican” and “Democrat.” (Hint: they aren’t there.)

Maybe we should remember that the unimaginable is hunger and homelessness. Powerlessness and loneliness.
