The following poem by James Agee, as sung by the choir, is inspiration for our morning meditation.

Sure On This Shining Night

Sure on this shining night
Of star made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night

I weep for wonder wand'ring far
alone
Of shadows on the stars.

With the closure of LAUSD this week, we look at how Unitarian Universalists had a calling and an agenda through the history of the United States to communicate values - particularly around elevating the cultural norms about children - at Christmastime. 

Unitarian Universalism has a history of “The Work of Christmas”... a work larger than one particular religion, one specific faith system or spectrum of philosophy. Our Unitarian Universalist history sources from Christianity, but is not contained by it. We have liberty to take all the best things from our heritage and leave the rest behind. Some of the best of our heritage is when we overcome darkness, fear, oppression and growing acts of violence and set a new vision and work toward it with enthusiasm.
