Sharing Global Faith - September Reflections

Sharing Global Faith gathers Unitarian and Universalist voices from around the world in a unique devotional e-resource.
Reflecting on various aspects of faith life, participants share spiritual insight into the stories and thoughts that fuel their ministerial call.
Distributed monthly from April until September 2009, the publication seeks to deepen international connections and nourish the individual spirit.

In this sixth edition, four global U/U leaders explore the meaning of HOPE to our faith tradition, reflecting on Alicia Carpenter's "A Promise Through the Ages Rings":

She grew up in a Unitarian family and after the Czech Republic broke with the communist regime in 1989 she put her heart and action into various church activities, which eventually resulted into her ordained ministry.
