“Articulating our Pluralism?”

Guest Speaker – AJ van Tine

In the text of the Principles and Sources, it is said that our living tradition draws on “many sources,” and that we are “grateful for the religious pluralism which enriches and ennobles our faith.” However, this implied pluralism is not clearly defined anywhere in our covenant. How might we articulate it, both to the world and to each other? And what might a greater focus on religious pluralism mean for our practice?

(AJ van Tine is a seminarian in his second year at Harvard Divinity School. He and his wife are lifelong Unitarian Universalists from Virginia where he was an active leader in youth, young adult, and campus ministry before moving to Massachusetts.)

Chalatenango Peace Quilt

The children of Chalatenango, El Salvador have just received a message of love from our own with the homemade cards accompanying toy animals that decorated our tree at the Whaling Museum for this past season’s “Festival of Trees.” So today we will learn about the beauty of color that makes the art and textiles of El Salvador like nowhere else. Out of a painful past, Chalatenango teaches us how even the tiniest ray of light is enough to vanquish what before was darkness. In honor of our El Salvadorian friends both at home and abroad, we will embark on a “Peace Quilt.”And no matter just a spoonful or an entire truckload . . . it only takes a touch of hope to stitch the world together with love.
