All Age Worship Services for October

Democracy & Building Beloved Community

In his 1940 novel, You Can’t Go Home Again (published two years after his death), Thomas Wolfe wrote, “I believe that we are lost here in America, but I believe we shall be found.... I think the true discovery of America is before us. I think the true fulfillment of our spirit, of our people, of our mighty and immortal land, is yet to come. I think the true discovery of our own democracy is still before us.” The truth is that democracy is an ideal, as is beloved community, and neither is easy to achieve in any country. And, in fact, these two are interdependent. It is notable that all seven of our principles are a blueprint for achieving both, especially, “the inherent worth and dignity of every person.”

“What Forms Us”

Creating the World We Want to Live In

Rev. Parisa Parsa writes, “In our religious lives, the democratic process requires trust in the development of each individual conscience—a belief that such development is possible for each of us, as well as a commitment to cultivate our own conscience.”

“Church Democracy and Loyalty”

Everyone has one, an opinion, that is.

Mark Twain said "Loyalty to a petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul."
