Between Memory and Hope

“Beloved Community” is a term of art that we UUs use sometimes to characterize religious communities. What’s it supposed to mean? Where did it come from? Beloved of or by whom? Are you “in” or “out”? How can one be sure? Should it even apply to our UU congregations; and what, by the way, has Love (CVUUS’ theme for February) got to do with it? Rev. Peter Newport, Rev. Tricia’s partner, took a deep dive into the philosophy and social criticism of Josiah Royce to suggest some answers, or at least some better questions. We share our offering with Black Church Food Security in honor of Black History month.
