“No, what makes somebody love, accept, and befriend their fellow man is letting go of a need to be better than others.” I don’t know if Dan of Single Dad Laughing is UU. But he’s pretty good at urging me toward my UU principle of standing on the side of love. He wrote this article… Continue reading Just Love Them
This is another one I wanted to be sure to get. This song was the theme for this year’s GA. Slide the slider back a bit for information about the song’s writer.
Here’s one of the songs I wanted to be sure to capture from GA to share at home. The video in that link will jump to the point where the song is, even though the whole video is the whole opening celebration.

Once upon a time I had a crisis of faith and it rocked everything I’d believed in to that point. For a time, I was atheist. It was rational. It was safe. I was unhappy.
