Sunday, July 15, The Third Step, Rev. Eliza Galaher

Rev. Eliza GalaherIn the world of 12-step recovery, the third step states: “We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.” For mainstream Christians as well as people of other explicitly theistic religions, such a step is central to living out one’s faith. But how might it be relevant to such an eclectic bunch as we Unitarian Universalists? Where might we butt heads with this step, and why? And what might we do to transcend semantics to get to the heart of this step?
