Questions on Evolution

Read over the questions and notice which one captures your attention. Read it over a few times and keep the question at the back of your mind through out the month.

One definition of evolution is: “The gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.” Have you grown more complex or simpler over time?

Random variations drive evolution in the natural world. What kind of “random variations” have driven your psychological or spiritual evolution? When has an unexpected change, personal “defect,” mess or twist of fate surprisingly turned out to be the key to your survival?

Evolution invites us to see ourselves as “a child of the universe.” We, like all life on this planet, are made up of atoms created billions of years ago. How does this understanding make a difference in your life?   

Unitarian Universalism embraces the idea that truth evolves. We accept that knowledge or truth is not static, but ever unfolding. If your life were put on trial for having “followed evolving truth,” would there be enough evidence to convict?

Aging can be seen as a process of evolution. Are you evolving well or evolving poorly when it comes to accepting the losses and changes that come with age?
