ROOTS AND WINGS
I grew up and raised my family in New York, Vermont and Massachusetts. When I was 45, I was called to ministry and moved to California to enter a Unitarian Universalist seminary at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. When asked whether I considered the East coast or the West coast my home, I saw that the East is the home of my roots, and the West is the home of my wings.
We are originally equipped with roots and wings. Our wholeness is experienced in both earth and sky. We cannot survive without grounding and stability. We cannot thrive without flight and freedom.
Thus we meet the world... in it and beyond it at once.
