Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockville (Rockville MD)
What is your suggestion or idea?
Regarding the image in section C-2.2, the word ““LOVE”” should appear as supporting the flaming chalice, by being placed under it, with the chalice and flame moved up.
What is the reason for your amendment idea?
The image of love in flames, or burning love, could be thought of by non-UU’s as an image of sexual desire. In popular music, ““Burning Love”” was one of Elvis Presley’s hit songs. The image could also evoke thoughts of love being destroyed by conflict (going up in flames). Placing LOVE in a symbolic position of support is more appropriate and less ambiguous.
Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?
This idea has also been forwarded to the congregation’s article2 group.
