Oak Cliff UU members continue to share what Standing on the Side of Love means to them. It’s not too late for you to share your thoughts as well. Send .txt .doc or .docx to Outreach@OakCliffUU.org, and we’ll add it to the blog.
Standing on the side of love means acceptance. Each day we are all confronted with issues that we do not support or agree with but we must have the ability to accept others as they are and allow all their freedom to their opinion and beliefs. On a deeper side, standing on the side of love means standing up for the HARD issues. It means fighting for freedoms that this country is supposed to stand for, not freedom for some but ALL. It means loving your neighbor and accepting them without judgement. It means reaching down and lifting up someone who needs a boost. It means equal HUMAN rights. It means advocating for parental involvement, not forced parental abandement (deporting). It means advocating for gay marriage, not fighting to protect your own marriage…nothing can diminish your marriage but you. It means continuing to fight to end slavery and not leaving that to the work of Martin Luther King Jr and turning our head to our foreign neighbors. It means, unconditional love!
