A MURMURATION OF UNITARIANS:
A collective poem

Sunday, May 8, 2022

Because of our connections,
we know who to turn to in troubling times.
To care for one another and extend kindness
and much needed help to the world.

Because of our connections,
we empathize with our joys and sorrows, trials and tribulations.
The power and influence of one is multiplied manyfold.

We are strong. Because of our connections
our children are raised whole and holy.
We feel joy, we become whole —

Because of our connections
our impacts on the world could be significant.
We could intentionally and consistently welcome the stranger.
Because of our connections,
I feel more deeply connected to myself.

We can be so strong together —
A murmuration of Unitarians could make the changes the world needs.
We could be an influence of health and beauty. We can make magic —

A murmuration of Unitarians could be a sign
of loving connections
that inspires others to rejoice.

Our murmuration could be an unstoppable force for social justice.

A murmuration of Unitarians could be a wave of positive energy
as we dance together in patterns of harmony
providing an alternative to polarization.

A murmuration of us could grow our community of love and justice.
We could set alight a world of possibilities:
bring forth light and warmth to the world.

A murmuration of Unitarians could shift the energy
from fear to love,
and peace.

We could move as one, each individual with unique thoughts —
and yet move together with a common spirit,

Responding to change, pivoting as needed,
lifting up all that needs lifting.

A murmuration of Unitarians could build a welcoming, diverse community
with dignity
and justice.

Because of our connections,
this Fellowship will thrive
into more years of growth.
