This week at uuworld.org: Psalm for exiles.
John Nichols offers a meditation on verses from Psalm 137 — "How could we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land?" — and writes about the importance of maintaining one's beliefs when surrounded by people who disagree with you. (His article is excerpted from a new Skinner House book, A Wind Swept Over the Waters: Reflections on Sixty Favorite Bible Passages. And check out the new UUA Bookstore website!)
In the news, Don Skinner reports on an Illinois fellowship's "Winterfaith" program, which invites representatives of different religious traditions to introduce UUs to their winter holidays. Don also writes that Unitarian Universalists gave $50,000 to assist California UUs affected by the wildfires last month. And Sonja Cohen tracks another week of Unitarian Universalists in the media.
