Minister’s Message

The Gift of Mystery
Ralph Waldo Emerson is probably the most famous thinker of our Unitarian Universalist tradition, with the possible exception of his friend, Henry Thoreau. The key to Emerson’s thought is what we know of as our first source of our Unitarian Universalist living tradition, namely: “Direct
experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.”

As people of faith and wonder, we welcome in the delight of mystery, the awe of unfolding adventures, the expansiveness of what it means to behold mystery as a gift to the imagination.

May our time together on Sunday remind us to stay open, stay inquisitive of what we do not yet understand, and be inspired to stretch ourselves into new ways of being. Welcome the Gift of Mystery, welcome her into our hearts and in our time of worship together.
