PLATEAUS AND CLIMBS, THEN IT’S TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN
I’ve often told people new to Unitarian Universalism that many of us alternate periods of resting on plateaus when we are experiencing congruity between what we believe and how we live our lives. And then…we depart from the comfortable plateaus when a new series of life’s persistent questions lead us into wilderness trails we but dimly see. A Unitarian hymn from my childhood put it this way: “We sing the stirring discontent that leaps from star to star.” Where are you on the journey?
