As we enter into 2020, it can be easy to get discouraged. Sometimes the world seems like it’s on fire and sometimes it actually is. How can we, as Unitarian Universalists, stay afloat and stay committed to all that our faith dares us to be? It begins with paying attention to the world, discerning where our values and priorities truly lie, and committing ourselves to working towards a better future to all.
