Trust is essential for building community. It’s the glue binding people in common hopes and aspirations. Without it, the tender cords between people whither. Trust accrues as actions to support it grow in a stable procession through all the seasons of relationship. Rev. Brock will explore the importance of trust as this congregation looks ahead to its future.
Many Unitarian Universalists come into our fellowship from experiences where trust was violated, and this tendency has a powerful effect on our communities. Trust for us is not a simple matter. It must be earned, not assumed. It can easily be lost. Once lost it is hard to regain.
