So, dear Unitarian Universalists: today is Palm Sunday and Passover starts tomorrow. You're probably busy, so I'll keep this brief.
Do we have a gospel? Not a bunch of gospels, or pieces that can be grouped into a gospel, but a story that makes it possible for a group of disparate persons into a particular people? I don't think we do. I think we have a context for ministry, where we bring gospels, but I don't think that'll be sufficient for long-term survival. And so the people will perish.
We may be too big to share a gospel (from this point) and too small to re-organize around multiple centers.
An unhappy thought, but not having the though won't save us. The comments are open.
