“Roots hold me close. Wings set me free.” – #123, Spirit of Life
I identify as a Unitarian Universalist with roots in Protestant Christianity and wings in Religious Naturalism, riding on the winds of mystical naturalists.
Like our Unitarian ancestors who utilized logical reasoning to interpret sacred text, I enjoy the intellectual process of exploring many of the world’s religious traditions. In addition to Christianity and Religious Naturalism, I have been inspired by aspects of paganism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, process theology, liberation theology, and queer theology.
Like our Universalist ancestors who embraced an expansive notion of Love, I open my heart to covenant, compassion, and creativity within the shared ministry of co-creating Beloved Community.
For me, rituals, communal singing, and sitting meditation are vital practices that strengthen my connections to the larger web of all existence of which I am a part.
