Sports. I’m a fan, do my best to play, but ultimately find deep appreciation in the competition. Sometimes I find another UU, particularly thanks to Rev. Charlie Kasts Baseball UU Spiritual Interactive that recently took a hiatus as Charlie retired, who is intensely in love with sports and competition as I. Too bad there aren’t more of us (or are there? are we hidden on the margins? hehe).
Internal competition within the UU community seems more easy to identify, but still obscured with language and expectations of non-competition. At least that is my initial observation. We have elections, the ministers compete for a growing scarcity of pulpits, there is only so much cash to go around for special projects. We have "real world" pressures. How does this affect us spiritually? What should our response be? I’m thinking about this, will write more later.
