Taking It Home: Giving Life the Shape Of Justice: The Spirituality Of Working For Change

Part of Spirit of Life

We covenant to affirm and promote...

... the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

... respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

The living tradition we share draws from...

... wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.

... Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves. — Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association

Talk with people you know who work for social change. Ask them about how their spirituality relates to the work that they do.

Reflect on "giving life the shape of justice," a line from the song "Spirit of Life" by Carolyn McDade. Include it in prayer, meditation, and journaling. Do you see the spirit of life as moving the world toward justice? Do you see yourself as moving the world toward justice? How, or how not? How might you participate in giving life the shape of justice?

Look for ways you can get involved in social justice work in your community. Engage in social action as an expression of your spirituality.
