The Roads Taken: Honoring the Faith Journeys of Others & Self
Our Unitarian Universalist principles support the seeking of religious truth based on personal experiences, and on respecting others’ searches, wherever they may take them. But do we really live up to our principles? Or do we tend to characterize certain fundamentalist or orthodox searches as misguided and naïve? And can we truly embrace religious tolerance without sacrificing a commitment to justice in the world? We’ll look at these questions with the aim of finding a bridge between personal faith and social interdependence.
