As Unitarian Universalists we have no central narrative, no creed to call our own. Given this, how can the work of understanding our place in the family of things around us, and grant us direction? What is a theology of belonging, and how might we develop our own, so that we may live from that center?

The spiritual path we follow in this life calls us to act on our beliefs and aspirations. As we strive to become more mindful through the fundamental practices of loving kindness and compassion, we grow in our awareness of the attachments that hold us back from attainment of the spiritual goals of peace and freedom. Our journey challenges our deep-rooted learning and unconscious beliefs. Privilege and our unconscious assumptions and behavior around privilege result in harmful actions to communities of color who do not share the same benefits and privileges of being white in this society.
