The Risks of Being Spiritually Awake

Kathryn Jay with Jim Gasperini

11:15 am only

The poet William Stafford wrote that “it is important that awake people be awake, or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep.” In times of uncertainty and despair, the lines grow sharper, the darkness gets deeper. Being awake means risking comfort for greater awareness, risking complacency for growing justice, risking loss for necessary change. What risks do we need to take in order to make ourselves and our community more able to fulfill our principles and stay awake as UUs?
