Introduction, Session 3: Looking Toward Tomorrow

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

I am always more interested in what I am about to do than what I have already done. — Rachel Carson

Big Question: Where are we going?

The past: Where do we come from? The present: What are we? The future: Where are we going? This session takes up the final question of Paul Gauguin's trilogy. It introduces the idea that Unitarian Universalism is a humanistic religion: We believe humans have the potential to greatly shape our mutual destiny. The session's central story presents Rachel Carson, one person who caused a shift in humanity's journey toward our future. In WIT Time, participants consider the increasing control they will gain, with time, over their own decisions and lives—and the responsibilities and opportunities which accompany that control.
