Almost all spiritual traditions suggest we treat others as we would like to be treated, and people in circumstances of oppression need others to be active allies in their struggle for freedom. But being and ally in a way that respectful and loving to all concerned - ourselves, victims, perpetrators, and bystanders - is not always straightforward. The good news is that the path of being an ally pushes us to make choices that are good not just for the world and our karma, but also for our own spiritual development.
UUs effect change in themselves, their families, and community by attending to their inner faith narrative. We learn how our "chosen faith" is similar to a volcano.
