  1. I want to comment on the phrase "bound together by our many different views". The reality is that differing views don't bind people together but push them apart in the normal run of things. "Celebrating difference" is hard work - even if we have the intuition that diversity really matters and is valuable. What we utterly lack is a methodology for diversity. It is not enough to state a principle. I am writing an article at the moment for The Inquirer on our diversity of outlook. Do the UUA have expertise in making diversity work in this sense?
