opening words

The choice to bless the world can take you into solitude to search for the sources of power and grace, native wisdom, healing, and liberation. More, the choice will draw you into community, the endeavor shared, the heritage passed on, the companionship of struggle, the importance of keeping faith, the life of ritual and praise, the comfort of human friendship, the company of earth, its chorus of life welcoming you.

None of us alone can save the world. Together—that is another possibility, waiting.


Theologian and president of the Unitarian Universalist Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, California; these words are from “Choose to Bless the World,” written for the 1992 Starr King catalogue.
