Have you surrendered yet?


Who knows why what happens happens?
We mistakenly think that we are in control.

"Shit happens" the bumper sticker said.
"Mega shit happens" was the follow-up.

"It is what it is," some people, wanting to appear wise, say.
"One day at a time" say those in recovery from addiction.

Humility is perhaps one of the most important virtues.
Knowing that our lives are unmanageable and we are not in charge is a devastating lesson.

Surrendering becomes the most beautiful and appropriate prayer.
"Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven" is music to the ear...and heart...and soul.

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote seven principles and it is in this covenant and reliance on the principles that faith and wisdom arise to help people become holy and to sanctify the world.
