Be ours a religion which, like
sunshine, goes everywhere;
its temple, all space;
its shrine, the good heart;
its creed, all truth;
its ritual, works of love;
its profession of faith, divine

~Theodore Parker

Now is the time when it seems like life could go back to “normal.” But reality is sifted through the filter of what happened last Sunday. Headlines move on, cameras roll elsewhere. But this flame remains in our hearts- the flame of our living tradition which calls us to risk love in the face of violence, to live in hope instead of fear.
