Sermon by Danielle Webber, Summer Minister.
The 7th Principle that Unitarian Universalist promote is Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Often lifted up to remind us of our place in the great cosmos of our planet earth; one species, one being, among millions, if not billions of creatures and life forms. But what about the less explored concept of our Interdependence among human beings? My colleague, and dear friend, the Reverend Theresa Ines Soto stated their understanding of this by saying “All of us need all of us to make it.”
What would it look like to embody this as a way of life? I have witnessed and I believe that Unitarian Universalists can live this way – but I also have noticed that we don’t often allow ourselves the opportunity to embody the interdependence of humanity. Please join me this Sunday to explore how a society of individualistic ideals has caused friction with our UU ideals of interdependence.
