How is it that the last shall be first, and the first shall be last?

While Jesus tells us that in the Kingdom, the first shall be last and the last shall be first, here on the path of the ego we don't believe it or act on it.

It is written in the Tao Te Ching that the humble is the root of the noble, the low is the foundation of the high.

The Tao Te Ching points out that too much success is not necessarily an advantage.

We Unitarian Universalists don't have to worry about too much success because we are a very small denomination. We are the yeast in the dough considered to be of little notice but we help the whole society, the whole world, rise.

Our Unitarian Univeralist covenant, based on our seven principles, and our six sources, while of little notice and small in number, is the lamp that sheds a beacon of light into our dark and weary world.
