UU Lent 2019 – Day 10 – Partnership

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” – Booker T. Washington

“None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.” – Mother Teresa

Partnership is more than friendship. It is not just being there for someone. Being a partner means working alongside them. Being a partner means holding each other accountable.

Transgender Religious Professional UUs Together (known as TRUUsT) has created a Call to Action because “In the wake of recent events and the Trump administration’s continued assault on trans lives, TRUUsT calls on Unitarian Universalists everywhere to take immediate action to live out the above truths and directly support trans UUs. Unitarian Universalism’s commitment to trans lives is all too often aspirational rather than true today. According to a recent survey, only 28% of trans UUs feel that their congregation is fully inclusive of them as trans people. We need this to change, because trans lives are at stake.”

As Unitarian Universalists, we are called to be better partners. As Rev. Theresa I. Soto states “All of us Need all of us to Make It.” This responsive reading co-written by Rev. Megan Foley highlights this.
