Hear, O UUs (Part 1)

The light is one.  The light is for everyone.

In yesterday’s post I wrote about the “UU Shema” that is my way of understanding Unitarian Universalism’s long, unwieldy name.

Unitarianism emerged from a desire for a more reasonable understanding of God.  For Unitarians, the doctrine of the Trinity demanded too many mental contortions, too many leaps of faith.  The light is one.

Universalism also emerged from a desire for a more reasonable understanding of God.  For Universalists, the doctrine of limited election was incompatible with their belief in a good and loving God.  The light is for everyone.
