What do we mean when we talk about shifting from an “I” church to a “We” church?

Acknowledging "the interdependent web" of the congregation

We are enough

From the brilliant Rev. Tandi Rogers at the UUA.

“The US economy is built on — is literally counting on — the notion of radical individualism coupled with consumerism. But what if [religious institutions like UU Congregations] are where we come to understand that we are more than enough …we can have enough in community …[we come to] acknowledge the “interdependent web of all existence” [and] learn to feel it in our very bones, and live accordingly? …When we surrender to the larger community, we can find our authentic self.”

Rev Tandi’s post helps us understand what that shift is all about. May we begin the discussion.
