This month’s sermons are intended to help us, as a congregation and as individuals, to create a strong pluralistic community, and to see our congregational diversity as a source of strength and power. Today’s sermon examines what may be the most difficult diversity of all: political difference. Will UUs of all political groups be welcome and made to feel comfortable at UU churches?
