Letter: Faith column

March 30, 2014 

First I want to commend the Statesman for including Said Ahmed-Zaid in its rotation of representatives of our faith community. As for the specific column addressed by Mark Garlock in his March 17 letter, the Unitarian denomination of the Protestant community set itself apart when its scholars could find no explicit passage in our sacred works that spoke of a triune God. There's a spirit that's part of thoughtful gatherings, there are followers of Jesus and Muhammad, there's a promise of spiritual guidance for rabbis and others devoted to spiritual truth. I encourage us to look for what we share with a generous, accepting heart. Mr. Garlock, show me your evidence. Maybe we Unitarian Universalists have overlooked something.
