No matter where we might place ourselves on the political spectrum, it seems like there is always so much overwhelming bad news! It’s hardly fun or sustainable to try to make the world a better place when we are fueled primarily by sorrow and suffering. After all, beauty and hope do exist. Could joy be a resource in the work of justice? Judaism, one of our Unitarian Universalist source traditions, can offer us some insight about moving past doom and gloom. In particular, the Fetival of Passover might be able to help us root ourselves in something more positive, even as we face hardship.
