*Next Sunday, Jen Johnson will lead our service “Can We Talk About the G- Word?”  Unitarian Universalsim is a faith unique in its openness to a diversity of perspectives, ideas, and beliefs about the big questions of existence.  At FUSF, we are proud to come together in religious community as Jews and Christians, atheists, humanists, Buddhists, pagans, agnostics, and seekers who claim no label at all.  And yet, this diversity creates a challenge. It can be hard to talk about what we believe and don’t believe, because we don’t all agree and we don’t share a common spiritual vocabulary.  As I journey through seminary and my own faith formation, I’m beginning to think this challenge may just be the wellspring of our faith.  A wellspring from which new and potentially life-transforming possibilities for spiritual growth and religious community might emerge.
