We take that old adage that beauty is in the eye of the beholder to be about the relativity of beauty, how we each name different things beautiful, which is, of course, true. But it also reminds us that if we wish to see beauty in the world, we must choose to behold it, to witness it, to make space for it and choose to name it such. After a season in which the scenes on our televisions have held more horror than holy, how do we reconnect ourselves to the reality of the beauty that yet surrounds us every day, in the mundane and the awesome both?
Rev Christopher Wulff is a fifth-generation Canadian Unitarian, who most recently served as Minister of the Westside UU Congregation in West Seattle. In his varied life he’s worked as a park ranger, a graphic designer and programmer, a counsellor for refugees and an advocate for people living in poverty, a professor of journalistic ethics, and a cook at a Unitarian Universalist retreat centre. His lovely wife Ariel also grew up UU, and worked for the CUC for many years, and they have two young kiddos who are more interested in the snack table after church than in the service, but who are quickly picking up the hymns sung around the dinner table. Christopher is currently experimenting with various treatments to resolve a period of major depression and organizing with folks to launch a new network of UU communities in Vancouver modelled after house churches and revivals.
