He is ill-clothed who is bare of virtue.
Man’s conduct is the paper
On which, the mind’s quill
Records both good and evil
As our deeds dictate, we live,
But God’s Grace knows no end
Share the joy of those who are happy and the grief of those who mourn. Live with one another in peace. Don’t be snobs, show the spirit of fellowship to those who aren’t important in the world’s eyes. Don’t grow a big head. Don’t pay back evil with evil; stay on higher ground.
We must get better at Universalist values of love and forgiveness, hope and courage…these are the virtues of the work of the spirit.
Rosemary Bray McNatt (Unitarian Universalist, minister)
Evil is the capacity, within us and among us, to break sacred bonds with our own souls, with one another, and with the holy. Furthermore, it is the willingness to excuse or justify this damage, to deny it, or to call it virtue
Victoria Safford (Unitarian Universalist, minister)
There is in every human heart
Some not completely barren part,
Where seeds of truth and love might grow,
And flowers of generous virtue flow;
To plant, to watch, to water there,
This be our duty, be our care.
Sir John Bowring (Unitarian, hymnist, statesman, reformer)
