Prose and poetry selections from inSpirit titles, previously known as meditation manuals, published since 1961 Unitarian and Universalist consolidation. An eloquent reminder of the UU tradition of inspirational writing by ministers and laity. Hardcover with ribbon.

Both the Unitarians and the Universalists brought to their merger a long tradition of publishing meditation manuals. This collection, gathered from the more than 1,700 meditations published since the merger, was created with a specific audience in mind: a reader looking for comfort and challenge, perhaps not a Unitarian Universalist but someone open to our values and our theology. For that reason the selections are not about Unitarian Universalism but of it. Each is by a Unitarian Universalist; each, I think, captures something important embedded in our tradition.

All this talk of saving souls.

Souls weren’t made to save,

like Sunday clothes that

give out at the seams.

They’re made for wear; they

come with lifetime guarantees.

Don’t save your soul.

Pour it out like rain on

cracked, parched earth.

Give your soul away, or

pass it like a candle flame.

Sing it out, or

laugh it up the wind.

— Linda M. Underwood,
