"We are always facing transition, always in need of fellow travelers and touchstones on our journey of becoming—perhaps never more so than when we are in our twenties and thirties. In these pages, poems speak to our souls; essays by young adults connect with us about their experiences; and songs and prayers lift our hearts in worship. Taken together, this poignant collection gently reminds us that none of us is alone as we navigate the shifting tides of adulthood." —Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association

This elegant volume offers itself as a spiritual companion for young adults and all who live amid transitions and tensions.

Dozens of carefully selected readings address themes that are prominent for people in their twenties and early thirties. The topics include:

  • Passion and purpose
  • Identity
  • Community
  • Losing and finding
  • Justice and creation

Each section features reflections from Unitarian Universalist young adults, as well as poems, prayers, and opening and closing words from contemporary and ancient peoples. This treasury of uplifting and thought-provoking meditations can serve as a guide and provide comfort on our never-ending journey of becoming.

Kayla Parker is a seminarian at Yale Divinity School. A young adult herself, she previously served as Campus Ministry Associate for the Unitarian Universalist Association.
