A leap of faith means having trust in a vision of the future without knowing all the details. As we begin our annual pledge drive, we will invite each other to reflect on times in our own lives when we have taken a leap of faith and to reflect on how our congregation is taking an enormous leap of faith with our new social hall and our vision of expanded ministry to one another and to the Kent community.

The proposed Eighth Principle calls us to “journey toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and in our institutions”. This service will be an opportunity to learn about the Eighth Principle. Why is this proposal so important? Why have other UU congregations endorsed it? How can we can join in the movement to create a Unitarian Universalism that is truly multi-cultural and inclusive?

In spite of our commitment to social justice, liberal religion has failed many times when it comes to living up to a vision of racial equality and inclusion. As we continue February’s theme of Widening the Circle, this service will be an opportunity to learn about some of the black trailblazers in our denominational history and to reflect on our hopes for a more racially aware and integrated future for Unitarian Universalism.

William B. Rice says that “love is a mystery in which we live and breathe and have our being.” What is this thing called love? In honor of (or perhaps in spite of?) Valentine’s Day, we will explore the many different meanings of love (the Greeks had five different words for it!), examine how love is the center of our Universalist heritage, and wonder at the power of love to hold us, heal us, and help us bring justice to the world.
