From our President, Bill Clinton:
Our church is one of this year’s UU Breakthrough Congregations — and Francis is a breakthrough pope.
I am honored and humbled that the Unitarian Universalist Association has chosen us as a Breakthrough Congregation for being a faith community “where any-thing is possible and where innovation is encouraged and cherished.” (See the October 2015 Focus, page 4.)
As a birthright Catholic I am drawn to Pope Francis’ call to action by all faiths and nations on issues of climate justice, poverty and immigration. The spirit of his encyclical on the environment can be summarized in one sentence: “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last 200 years.”
