While the Feast of St. Valentine has been celebrated since 496, it wasn’t until Chaucer wrote a poem in 1382 that the celebration became associated with romance and even at that only became more widely recognized in this country in the 19th century. Is it possible that as Unitarian Universalists, we are uniquely suited to reflect on those earliest years to find inspiration for a richer, more inclusive and purposeful celebration today?
