Ask ten Unitarian Universalists about God and you’ll receive ten different answers. My church refuses to be limited by a singular explanation of such a staggering concept; instead, people are encouraged to explore their own personal ideas. I struggle when it comes to defining any sort of Higher Power– it’s much easier for me to eliminate what God is NOT as I articulate the meaning of the word.
This breathtaking exchange embodies the very definition of God as I believe:
What I see here renders me speechless. Tears stream down my face and chill bumps cover my arms. I watch this again and again and the effect doesn’t diminish. This is God.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
