Are you aware of the absent but implicit?

We benefit as much from what not is there as by what is there.

How can this be so? It is the space within the cup that holds our coffee. It is the holes in the wall that we use as doors and windows. It is the pause in our conversation which can intensify its meaning.

In Unitarian Univeralism we do not cling to one creed. We do not cling to sacraments and rituals. We stay open to the free and responsible search for truth and meaning which provides a fluidity and flexibility that other religions lack.

Unitarian Univeralists say, "My God is too big for any one religion" and smile at the lack of an identity. Like the Tao people, UUs say, "The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao"

Unitarian Univeralists know that the named is the mother of ten thousand things and all those things do not describe the mystery animating the kaleidescope we call our lives.

Unitarian Univeralists are alert to the absent but implicit and live lives of curiosity, peace, and joy.
