Below is a link to the recorded worship for First Parish in Cambridge for Sunday, May 3. Much of my work outside of supporting my congregation through this crisis has been involved with answering questions related to people experiencing homelessness. Seeing the vulnerability of some of the people in our community has really exposed weaknesses in our local approach, our statewide approach and in the Federal approach. But none of this means anything if we don’t have a personal approach and understanding of people’s full humanity.
Maybe a mature Unitarian Universalism offers a healing theology of relationship. A Unitarian Universalism that says before I judge you for your skin, or your wealth, or your faith or your home…or lack of a home, I’m going to humbly invite a relationship of some kind with you that honors your whole humanity first.
