The UUA Bookstore Presents A LONG TIME BLOOMING: MEDITATIONS by Marta I. Valentín
In this beautiful volume, selected as our 2014 UUA meditation manual, Marta I. Valentín reflects on the spiritual dimensions of her intersecting identities as a Latina, lesbian, feminist, God-worshipping Unitarian Universalist minister. With candor and insight, she probes what is universal in her own very particular history and what it means to strive for beloved community in the face of marginalization and cultural misunderstanding.
Rev. Marta Valentín invites us to witness Mardi Gras beads thrown as gifts for the chosen in New Orleans, to see the sacredness of yellow taxi cabs in dark nights, to bless the transitions of adolescence into adulthood, of life into death. These are words, prayers and meditations for Unitarian Universalism now-alive with bold images and offering an openhearted spirituality that acknowledges pain and hope, roots and possibility.
-Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen, Community Minister, Boston
