Rev. Deborah Bennett

Whether explicitly or implicitly we are often taught that someone is either an “us” that is safe to welcome into our lives or an ‘other’ that is to be feared and rejected. As Unitarian Universalist we value inclusivity and commit ourselves to the practice of radical welcome. Alas, this is sometimes easier said than done. Today we ask: How do we practice being fully welcoming? What would happen if we all lived as if there were, no ‘others’ among us?
