Henry David Thoreau, 19th century Transcendentalist Unitarian, is quoted as having said that “the question is not what you look at, but what you see.” I’ve known people who looked at a forest and saw only mud, wood and leaves. Meanwhile, others saw not only the miraculous interrelationships between soil, air, sun, water and time – but a trail of footprints belonging to their own unborn descendents. Vision is essential!
What do you see?
Vision is essential as we join together in support of liberal religious values and community. It expands our sense not only of what is possible, but of what we can and should joyfully offer up in the name of that possibility!
