Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 6: Claiming A Point Of View

In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program

The issue of perspective is a powerful one for Unitarian Universalists. It is often hard for us to put ourselves in the shoes of someone else. We think that as liberals we are able to see many viewpoints. That may be true, but there are certain points of view we struggle with: racist, fundamentalist, black-and-white thinking, to name a few. Maybe we should not be able to see the world from all angles. We each contribute our own point of view to the collective. Not one of us has the final or most perfect viewpoint. We can in fact learn a great deal from listening to others' points of view. Be open. Be on the lookout for viewpoints that you find most challenging. What makes them challenging? What can you learn?
