I was living Unitarian Universalism’s fourth principal long before I had ever heard of Unitarian Universalism. I will tell you about my “free and responsible search for truth and meaning” as far back as I can remember.
I have always loved to wonder and imagine about God, the Universe, the intricate patterns on a leaf or how the Monarch Butterfly knows where to go when it migrates. Those are some of the things that fueled my search for something more. More than my dad’s Secular Humanism, more than my friends’ Christianity, more than the brilliant science of evolution.
I was searching for answers, for some truth outside myself. What I found was an answer within myself: “I don’t know.”
