 Cover, March/April 2004 UU World: Reconciliation
opening words

Every man wants . . . to know that—however vast and impersonal all life about him may seem, however hard may be the stretch of road on which he is journeying—he is not alone, but the object of another's concern and caring; he wants to know this in an awareness sufficient to hold him against ultimate fear and panic. It is precisely at this point of awareness that life becomes personal and the individual a person . . . and the way is cleared for him to experience his own spirit.


Minister of the multiracial, culturally pluralistic Church for the Fellowship of All People in San Francisco (1944-1953) and dean of Boston University's Marsh Chapel (1953-1965), Thurman was one of the most prominent African American theologians in the mid-twentieth century. From Disciplines of the Spirit (1963); quoted in Paula Cole Jones's cover story, “Reconciliation as a Spiritual Discipline”.
