philosopher Plato compared the human mind to a ship on which the sailors had
mutinied and locked the captain and the navigator in a cabin. On such a ship, the sailors feel free to
steer the ship as they like, but their direction is erratic.
The goal of
our religious education and youth programming in Unitarian Universalist
congregations has been to help you free your navigator and captain and to guide
you as you have learned to take command of your ship of life.
