Rev. Wendy Patoja, UU Guest Minister, Co-chair of the Anti-Racism and Diversity Committee of the UU Metro NY District.

In our earnest wish to be as inclusive of as many people as possible, it is not unusual for Unitarian Universalists to borrow elements or rituals from other cultural and religious traditions. But even with the best of intentions, too often we end up trampling on the identity of the very people with whom we are trying to ally. How can we remain in right relationship while welcoming and honoring others?

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~ Mother Teresa

If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner. ~ Nelson Mandela
