Marching to the Beat of Our Own Drum
Aaron Norris, Ministerial Resident
Our identity always exists within context. We define ourselves both from within and from without, in both comparison and in contrast. Sometimes our identities pull us closer to one another, but never exactly the same path. Henry David Thoreau once observed, “If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” Where does that drum beat come from and what is it for? Unitarian Universalists are a notoriously independent minded bunch who march (or dance) to their own particular and varied beats. Our Ministerial Resident Aaron Norris explores the risks and benefits of marching, dancing, or meandering together.
