Sunday, February 28, 2016: “Living Connected in a World of Greed”

Host: Chad Minteer

Presenter: Julie Merrick

Each of us has a legitimate need for connection yet we live in a culture that supports a state of being disconnected, leading to feelings of greed that can never be satisfied. We are encouraged to over-consume and over-accumulate in a misguided attempt to feel that we are enough and that we have enough. Yet no amount of what we don’t need can satisfy or fill the empty space within. What we do need is a deeper connection with community and nature and spirit; we need opportunities for meaningful self-expression, for intimacy and belonging.

As we look at the components of our culture that hold us apart from what we need, we can choose differently and embrace a world that holds us, rather than scares us.

As Unitarian Universalists, we have a proud tradition of responding to the imperatives of love and justice to work with those of us who are marginalized and oppressed in society and the world. Unitarian Universalists covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person; justice, equality and compassion in human relations; and acceptance of one another.
