Our Journey Is to Transform

Our Journey Is to Transform

Elizabeth Nguyen

As Unitarian Universalists, our journey is to transform the big and the small, to transform ourselves, and to transform the world. Universalism means no one is outside of the circle of love, and no one is disposable.

Response: “No one is outside of the circle of love, and no one is disposable.”

We stubbornly seek out the spark of the divine in each other, no matter what. Interdependence means none of us is truly free until we are all free, and our thriving is bound up in the earth’s thriving.

Response: “None of us is truly free until we are all free.”

We struggle for liberation from the violence of white supremacy, sexism, ableism, classism, and heterosexism. Our covenants mean we make promises to our communities to honor love and justice above all else.

Response: “We make promises to honor love and justice above all else.”
