The crisis I see is that a majority of our Unitarian Universalist national leaders have become committed to a particular ideology that threatens two aspects of UUism.
I’ve been called a religious omnivore, but I call myself a Jewish Buddhist Unitarian Universalist Contrarian — Jewish by birth and early culture, Buddhist by calling, Unitarian Universalist by spiritual community, and Contrarian by temperament. I am a lay preacher in UU churches, a leader of Buddhist meditation groups, and a storyteller my Jewish ancestors would be proud of. The more I write, the more I feel that my mission is to help the many who seek spiritual wholeness but don’t feel at home with an imposed dogma. So expect an eclectic mix from my blog that I hope you will find interesting and helpful on whatever path you are taking. May the words I need to say be those you need to hear.
