“The great test of our Unitarian Universalist faith is not whether we believe we can bend the [moral arc of the universe toward justice], but how we are when the bending looks oh so differently from what we expected,” writes the Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen. Although many ideas in our tradition have evolved over time, we UUs hold on passionately, maybe even desperately, to belief in the “progress of [hu]mankind onward and upward forever.” Perhaps there is a more true and more resilient approach available to us.
