We all want to belong. We are social creatures, who seek a community, which will provide us with existential reassurance and personal safety, while also helping us to bring about certain values to the world.

As Unitarian Universalists what do we mean by blessed belonging – our Blessed Community? Does its blessedness overcome the pitfalls of belonging?
