Social Justice work supports a person's spiritual growth and transformation.
But thinking one can “save the world” or “transform the world” or even that one knows for darn sure they “stand on Love’s side” (which seems the UU way of saying God’s side) is a kind of hubris and egotism that I firmly believe impairs a person's spiritual growth.
No way to grow Churches. No way to transform oneself. It is a slippery path towards isolation and self absorption.
PS A self absorption that comes with the realization the world goes on changing in ways you don't foresee or probably much like.
