Divinity

 

Our Whole Souul Living Theme for this month is Divinity. For traditional Christians, the word usually refers to the Christian God or the nature of Jesus. For Jews, divinity could apply to anything from the orthodox God of the Old Testament to the cosmic Ein Sof (without end) of Kabbahlistic teaching. For many Indigenous People, divinity could refer to the animating spirits of nature or the mysterious forces that turn the seasons or the world.

An Open Letter About Brock Turner

This post is not officially from First Unitarian Society of Denver, just a personal statement by Senior Minister, Rev. Mike Morran. 

Truth

The 4th Principle of Unitarian Universalism is: “A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Certainly there is a category of empirical truth to the physical world. Just as certainly there is a category of more subjective truth that will vary from person to person. Still, in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, we take the question of religious truth very seriously. It was the search for truth and a more authentic religious experience that led us to break away from more traditional Christianity.
