Many of us struggle with the sense that we need to be perfect, but perfection is actually a bad ideal for human beings. We'll consider our imperfections—especially the forgetfulness some of us are prone to as we age—and what they have to teach us.

Unitarian Universalists have a proud tradition of lay leadership within each congregation. Do congregational leaders possess some “magical” set of skills and abilities that contribute to successful leadership? How can we as church members access this “magic” and develop our abilities in leadership?

We often see illness as a problem—or, a betrayal as if the illness came to hurt us. The reality is, illness is a natural companion in life. Illness tells us when things are out of balance in our systems and points to what needs attention. It can move us into deeper understanding and growth, if we allow it.

The portrayal of Islam throughout the world has never been so distorted as in recent times. With so much emphasis and focus put on the negative, irreligious actions of those that claim to be Muslim, it is imperative that the true teachings and practices of Islam are highlighted for all the world to see. There is no better way to do so then reflect on the life of a man known as the "Greatest of All Time," our champ, Muhammad Ali.

Summer is the traditional time for vacationing: taking time to shed the heavy mantle of responsibility most of us carry in our everyday lives, time to rest, relax, and perhaps kick up our heels a little! When we “vacate” our usual routines, what happens next? Do the worlds of work and worry grind to a halt in our absence? Or perhaps our absence allows for something new to happen. Is there a UU “theology of vacation?”
