"I have heard that when something is valuable and worthwhile, you are not apt to find it lying around in great heaps. Diamonds and gold are rare. Lions do not congregate in large numbers. So it is that God is not easy to find. Truth is not easy to put your hands on. But the saints, in all religious traditions, say that there is something about the search itself that instructs us, humbles us, informs us. Just because our own life sometimes appears to be empty of spiritual treasure, doesnít mean that this treasure doesnít exist. People do find amethysts! People do experience the reality of God."-from "Amethyst Beach"

A UUA meditation manual for 2007.

Barbara Merritt is senior minister at the First Unitarian Church of Worcester, Massachusetts, where she has served for 24 years. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Starr King School for the Ministry and has received two honorary doctorates.
