An Ash Wednesday Message For Unitarian*Universalist Men And Women
"Repentance rescues the man from sin to holiness, from earth to heaven."
I've heard that it works reasonably well with women too Boston Unitarian. Indeed I know of some U*U women who would benefit from a little repentance, maybe even a lot of repentance. . .
I find it very sad how so few U*Us, including U*U clergy (if not especially U*U clergy), seem to be ready, willing, or indeed able to bring themselves to confess to their various sins of commission and sins of ommission, take personal responsibility for their questionable actions, or indeed negligent inaction. . . and move towards wholeness if not holiness. Surely U*U principles and ideals call for repentance as part and parcel of justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
