When Luke Stevens-Royer went off to college, he witnessed religious inclusivity that was quite different from his upbringing in a moderately conservative Lutheran family. So he approached the chaplain—quite angry and upset—and she listened to his anxieties, fears and frustrations. She met him with gentleness and compassion as he struggled to see a more embracing view of the Divine and different ways to understand Scripture and tradition. Luke wasn’t sure about it all at first, but it eventually started to resonate.

Now, as a Unitarian Universalist minister, Luke remembers who he was as a kid and what he has become. He remembers that it takes gentle seeds of transformation to take root in one’s soul. He reminds us that the work of justice is about communities and affirming relationships—even with those we disagrees with.

Hope can be found in those unseen places.
