As Unitarian Universalists we celebrate a creed-free faith that we proclaim as welcoming of all souls. And yet, even in our openness we can find ourselves making assumptions that diminish our appreciation of other religions—Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, or Muslim. In his work with the Religion and Faith Department at the Human Rights Campaign, writer Norman Allen interviewed members of the LGBT community who remain deeply devoted to faith traditions that are often unwelcoming of their own lives and loves. This Sunday he draws on those narratives to explore the riches to be uncovered when we put aside the things we know and open our hearts—and minds—to new possibilities.
