From Roots to Branches – The Youth Group

On this Earth Day weekend, the Youth of this congregation decided to combine the monthly congregational theme, Roots, with the challenge of appreciating the many Branches of our interdependent world. Our UU faith gives us a rooted sense of identity as we negotiate our lives; but our faith also encourages us to know about and value opinions and lives very different from our own. This Sunday, we live into a central tension: how do we strengthen our sense of purpose while not living in an echo chamber of our own ideas? How do we move from our roots to life’s branches?
