How do UUs influence change?

Only the stupid and desperate try to change things by force from the top down.

The wise and patient change things subtly, gently from the bottom up.

Force leads to resistance.

Gentleness leads to flexibility.

Those with an ego who change things by force boast.

Those on the path of the spirit change things gently and praise God.

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in their congregations and throughout their communities. Acceptance implies inclusion, even of diversity, and rather than a melting pot, UUs make a beautiful mosaic of a tossed salad.
