Questions on Love & Justice

Engage with one question over the month, revisiting it as you reflect on love & justice in the coming days.

Who showed you the relationship between love and justice when you were growing up? Was there an experience in your youth or childhood where you saw the connection between love and justice?

Unitarian Universalists draw on the source “words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.” Who are those prophetic people that have inspired you and do inspire you?

Sometimes we know about justice because of the transforming power of love in our lives. Whose love has helped you believe that the world can be a fairer, kinder place? What actions have they inspired you to do?

Sometimes we know about love and justice because we have experienced when they have both been absent. Can you think of a time without love and justice in your life or in the life of someone you care about? How did it influence you to live as a result?

The arts have a powerful influence in our culture. What book, film, poem, song, or other creative expression has influenced how you think about love and justice?
