My UU Bumper Sticker

One Love = Unitarian Universalism

In one of those great Confucian late night efforts of distilling faith years ago, sitting around listening to the hopeful cynicism of Cat Stevens, or the warm embrace of the Indigo Girls, it comes to us young religious UU’s.  One Love.  But then U2 makes a song of it, and we’re not sure if we’ve been co-opted!

One is of course for the Oneness of God, the Unity of the classical Unitarian.

Love is God’s supreme and transformational love, that no part of creation can ultimately obstruct.  And thus, we are all Universally Saved.  Universalism.

These words seem ancient now…from another time in my life.  But they bring a smile, for what they mean, and where they are from.
