Unitarian Universalism is historically an optimistic faith, with a deep-seated respect for human potential —but is “optimism” even possible anymore? Is it naïve to imagine good times in the midst of the bad times? * Just before Christmas, we distributed “seed paper ornaments” to many folks—we will be using these ornaments in this service! If you would like a seed ornament and did not receive one, please let us know. We will be putting some out for pick-up at USSB, or we can mail one to you.
