“In his 2016 book, the Rev Fred Muir talks about the “Trinity of Errors” that have grown to characterize our Unitarian Universalist faith. He says, “we have deemed these our history and ignored other qualities that have shaped us.” The Trinity of Errors are “individualism, exceptionalism, and anti-authoritarianism.” These “are not going to continue to work in this century,” he warns.

Instead, our Living Tradition must look again to our heritage for a new direction, for shaping and guiding the deepest values we hold as a religious community. Rev Muir points us to the “Trinity of Promises” which can be rediscovered in our roots which are: “generosity, pluralism, and imagination.” Come, let us look back at heritage, let us leave behind what no longer serves us, and together move into our vision of an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multi-cultural future!
