To Be a Unitarian Universalist

To be a Unitarian Universalist means we’ll never be done with the work:
the work of telling the truth about oppression
the work of resisting any laws, policies, or practices that deny anyone their humanity
the work of stubbornly seeking out the spark of the divine each other, no matter what
the work of creating heaven on earth

Zentangle Chalice by Cynthia Landrum 2013

To be a Unitarian Universalist also means we’re not alone in the work:

we are not alone because of our promises to love one another
we are not alone because we are companions on the journey
we grow ourselves into allies,
helping one another get free —
because none of us is truly free until we are all free.

Inspired by Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen's chapter, "Our Work for Social Justice," in The Unitarian Universalist Pocket Guide.
