Can you handle paradox?

Acceptance and appreciation of paradox is a sign of maturity.

F. Scott Fitzgerald said that the test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two contradictory ideas in the mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.

Unitarian Universalists in covenanting together to affirm and promote the respect for the interdependent web manifest this kind of first rate intelligence.

UUs understand that to yield and be the bigger person is tranformational.

UUs undertand that to bend and keep one's balance allows one to be upright.

UUs understand that to re-cycle the old is to create something anew.

UUs understand that to simplify one gains the whole world of well being.

UUs understand that the more one knows the more one understands how little one really knows.

UUs understand that the last shall be first and the first shall be last.

UUs understand that no matter how low one goes, one still possesses inherent worth and dignity and is part of the Divine.
