Renewing a Moral Democracy

Rev. Marti Keller

Eleanor Roosevelt wrote that "at a time when the whole world is in turmoil and thousands of people are homeless and hungry, it behooves  all of us to reconsider our political and religious beliefs in an effort to clarify in our minds the standards by which we live."

Our own faith movement, the Unitarian Universalist Association, is currently engaged in studying and then drafting a statement of conscience on The Corruption of Our Democracy, with democracy being not mearly a means but an end in itself, an ethical ideal, a moral and spiritual way of relating to one another, both within our congregations and society at large.

Fellowship Contribution Campaign

We Build on Foundations We Did Not Lay

We build on foundations we did not lay

We warm ourselves by fires we did not light

We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant

We drink from wells we did not dig

We profit from persons we did not know

This is as it should be.

Together we are more than any
one person could be.

Together we can build across the generations.

Together we can renew our hope and faith
in the life that is yet to unfold.

Together we can heed the call to
a ministry of care and justice.

We are ever bound in community.

May it always be so.

Rev. Peter Raible (1930-2004)
UU Minister, Seattle, WA

"We are being called, like our mothers and fathers, to be the moral defibrillators of our time.  We will shock this nation and fight for justice for all....We will not give up on the heart of our democracy, not now, not ever."       Rev William Barber
