“Source Six: Earth-Centered Traditions,” Rev. Tony Larsen

This is the last in Tony’s series on our UU sources:

“Spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions

which celebrate the sacred circle of life

and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.”

Not only is this the last in our UU list of sources, but it was the last source to be included. (If you look in our UU hymnbooks, you’ll find that this source is not listed in most of the hymnbooks we have at Unitarian Church North.) Two obvious questions:  Why did UUs add this source to our UUA bylaws in 1995, 10 years after they had ratified the other 5 sources? And why didn’t they have it in there in the first place? (What took them so long?) Tony’s sermon will also help us examine the sources and principles from earlier Unitarian and Universalist faith statements, and how they morphed into what we have today.
