Did you know that Orthodox Jews like Moses are instructed to never go without shoes because it might lead them astray? Whereas, Jesus walked his lonesome valley mostly barefoot and no one seemed all that bothered. As religious freethinkers, we UUs are not keen on the idea of limiting our options. Essentially, we like the freedom within form that defines our way of being religious; for instance, whether to wear shoes or not (literally and metaphorically).
Even so, we need to get beyond being tenderfoots religiously through a process of “converting to our own paths” as UUs. With Passover and Easter co-mingle, we’ll look at the steps involved in this unorthodox “conversion,” and along the way, consider the power of truly feeling “holy ground” beneath our feet as “barefoot believers.”
