Gentle as a dove (wise as a serpent)

The life of faith is full of paradox. We are challenged to our beliefs out loud even as we try to stay humble. We are partnered with different churches for different reasons. We work with the Methodists on sanctuary and with another UU church for homeless families.
We also have a partnership with a congregation in Romania. Their symbol is a dove atop a hill surrounded by a serpent. This comes from an instruction from Jesus who sent his followers into the world telling them to be “wise as serpents and gentle as doves.” Come Sunday and we will explore the paradox together.
