It’s popular in Unitarian Universalism to think about our religious movement as a “chosen” faith. But what does that really mean? Chosen by whom and from among which options? When we focus only on personal choice, we can inadvertently hide and even devalue some of the ways our world helps us decide how to live. If we take a broader and more intentional view, we can celebrate the rich complexity of our individual journeys and even learn how to sustain and strengthen Unitarian Universalism.
