We have learned to shrink time and space. Good things…but only up to a point. Spiritually mature people in all traditions teach us that time and space are not commodities, but are necessities for growing our souls. This is a sermon about
living at a sustainable pace. Rev. Ken Beldon is the Lead Minister of the four year old WellSprings Congregation in Chester County. He’s the editor and author of “Wrestling with Adulthood: UU Men Talk About Growing Up.”
What, if anything, sits at the center of Unitarian Universalism? Are we united by more than our commitment to diversity and doing good works?

Peter Friedrichs is the Lead Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County.
