Power To Say No, Rev. Kent Matthies

A healthy church supports people to say no.  We should stand up and say no to abuse in all its forms.  We should also be empowered to say no when a certain activity doesn’t fit with our core values or ethics.  Because we are a liberal religion some people think that in Unitarian Universalism anything goes.  It should not be that way.  As a community and as individuals we should always have the choice to say no to each other and ourselves.  Our religion can help us say no to eating too much sugar, overworking or staying stuck on sad.  Saying no to the wrong path can open up a vision for a better path.
