Family resemblances are curious things – they simultaneously remind us of our kinship with one another and give us a sense of belonging; also in their unique configurations they set us apart from one another. Our resemblances can be physical – like the shape of a nose or a peculiar cowlick in the hair. They can be behavioral – like a quirky sense of humor shared across generations. They can be attitudinal or philosophical – like an optimistic orientation toward the world, or a sense of adventure. What distinctive traits do you have that help you feel connected to the rest of your family?
Like other kinds of families, faith traditions share family resemblances that set us apart and bind us together. There are UU congregations in Britain, Europe and India, the Philippines and in Japan. They are distinctly different from one another at the same time they share certain family resemblances. What makes our congregation unique? What family resemblances would you expect to connect us to other UU congregations around the country or the world?
