The world around us is swirling with opinion and judgments. Especially in today’s political climate, we are often compelled to choose a side and defend it.
Andre Mol, a ministerial intern at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington, Vermont, asks, “What our world would be like if we set aside our judgments, our ideas of right and wrong, and we spoke from a shared space of emotions and needs?”
This is not our typical way of speaking with each other. If we are bold enough to venture into this space, we might find that it commits us to a deeper level of connection, helping us to find sacred ground from which we can move forward.
