When you share your stories, you may be able to offer ideas and inspiration to others, and find UU and interfaith partners to further the work you are doing.

As the Reverend Mark Morrison-Reed said: (Singing the Living Tradition, #580)

The central task of the religious community is to unveil the bonds that bind each to all. There is a connectedness, a relationship discovered amid the particulars of our own lives and the lives of others. Once felt, it inspires us to act for justice.

It is the church that assures us that we are not struggling for justice on our own, but as members of a larger community. The religious community is essential, for alone our vision is too narrow to see all that must be seen, and our strength too limited to do all that must be done. Together, our vision widens and our strength is renewed.
