For Unitarian Universalists, hope is part of our religious outlook, and it is part of what drives our work for the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. In preparation for this workshop on hope, as the opening quote suggests, "quiet your mind, quiet, quiet." Reflect on that place in the depths of your soul where the divine or Spirit of Life and the human meet and a flower rises up. Is the divine or Spirit of Life a source of hope for you? Do you draw more on humanity's capacities? Or is it the meeting of the two that gives rise to hope in you? What other sources of hope do you draw on to motivate your work for world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all? Participants will likely have a variety of answers to these questions, which creates a wonderful opportunity for learning and inspiration.
