December 15, 2034 
Thanks for the phone call, sweetie; your dad gave me a heads-up about your Coming of Age assignment. It’s a good question you asked—how being Unitarian Universalist is different now than it was for your dad or your grandfather, or your great-grandfather, for that matter.

Healing and Forgiveness

Sometimes it feels like there are a lot of broken things in the world. How can we help to heal our world and each other? Each month, the Church of the Larger Fellowship curates reflections, stories, prayers, and more on a spiritual theme that's close to our hearts.
