Why Universalism? Because it “throbs with hope.” What is faith but a belief in something larger than myself, an expansion of ideas or thoughts when I am caught in the smallness of my humanity?
The trees are leafing out, it seemed to happen overnight. The daffodils are up; the azalea bushes are bursting with color. The underneath of the world is greening. I can’t hold onto despair while the birds are chirping, can you?
