Chalica is a week long holiday celebrating the Seven UU Principles. It is a time of reflection, community, and living our faith.
Here are some ways to help you celebrate.
Marginal Wisdom by Leslie Takahashi
A thought to Ponder:
The adult version of this principle states we accept one another. Who do you have a hard time accepting?
Yellow picture credit to Kris Nobis Cervantes.
The dictionary defines acceptance as a) the action or process of being received as adequate or suitable, typically to be admitted into a group and b) the action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered.
“There’s my Temple” is an affirmation about acceptance from Ma Theresa Gustilo Gallardo.
“Our third UU principle says we will affirm and promote acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. Are there some ways to encourage one another that don’t sound like judgment or advice?”
These words were a part of the sermon delivered by Rev. Meg Barnhouse this past Sunday. For me it it was a needed reminder that we have to remain true to ourselves and how we can still do that while upholding out principles. Below are links to the podcast and the transcript of the sermon.
