Ralph Waldo Emerson once opined: “Let the measure of time be spiritual, not mechanical.” As our tradition and our world enter into a new era – a period of unapologetic optimism – we, the practitioners of this Unitarian Universalist faith, must find resources from which to draw sustenance and strength for the future. “We need to find God,” Mother Teresa contends. While this monthly devotional may not unveil the Spirit of Life in its infinite intricacies, it is the hope of the UUA’s Office of International Resources that the reflections and prayers contained in each month’s publication will help point to manifestations of the divine in our everyday lives. Grounded in the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all, Sharing Global Faith invites Unitarians and Universalists from around the world to deepen and enrich our shared global faith.


The international devotional will be distributed on the third Monday of every month starting in April, 2009 and running through September, 2009. Each publication will address a central issue in the development of faith-life and will include thoughtful responses from a diverse geographical selection of U/U spiritual leaders. Topics range from freedom to fellowship, justice to hope. Alongside the monthly e-resource, the devotional’s webpage will host additional information about the project and each of the contributors.


The great spiritual poet Rumi observes: “my soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” Let your heart and soul travel with this devotional throughout the landscape of our global faith, in search of nourishment and renewal.
