In last month’s Comment I challenged you to listen to your heart to discern and discover your truth in this moment of your life, and then tell the story of your truth in a This I believe statement. It’s what we ask our youth to do when they complete their Coming of Age program! My colleague, Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh, has said, “A credo is a snapshot of your values, faith, identity, and belief at one point in time. As Unitarian Universalists, we understand that your religious ideas will evolve throughout your life. It is understood by all that your credo is simply an expression of where you are now and not for all time.” I’m encouraging you to do this because it’s part of the responsible search for truth and meaning that we affirm and promote in our fourth principle. If you choose to take this challenge but do not wish to share your credo with me, please just email me and let me know you’re doing it so you can be counted among those courageous people who respond to the challenge! The deadline for receiving your credo is February 20th.
In an effort to assist you in this challenge, I will hold a Zoom session on Tuesday, February 8 th , 7:30-8:15 p.m. for anyone that would like some guidance on how to get their credo writing started. If you’d like the link for this session, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can do this!
