Spiritual Economy

David Usher

By Jon Sievert

For his third and closing message to the San Miguel de Allende Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, the Rev Dr David Usher discusses the concept of spiritual economy at this Sunday’s service.

How do you spend your time? Each of us has 24 hours every day, and it is up to us to decide how to spend those hours. We can choose to be productive high achievers or simply dawdle through the day. We can have times of activity and times of rest. Time and motion study experts tell us how to be more efficient, and that is not a bad thing. But if we wish to create a life rather than just make a living, if we want to be spiritually alive and aware rather than simply going through the motions, no matter how busy we are there is perhaps one thing we should all be doing more of. What might that one thing be for you?

Rev David Usher has had a truly international career as a Unitarian Universalist. A lifelong Unitarian, he hails from Adelaide, Australia. After four years as a jackaroo on sheep and cattle stations in the outback, he spent two years traveling solo around New Zealand, the Pacific islands, North America, and Great Britain. During this time of travel, he decided he wanted to be a minister, eventually studying for the ministry at Manchester College, Oxford, where he gained a master’s degree in philosophy and theology.

He retired in June 2017 after a 36–year career that featured two ministries in England and one in New Hampshire, where he served for nine years and earned his doctorate from Andover Newton Theological School, then 14 more years in England, and finally another three in California. He is the founding president of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists and served on the national executive committee during his second stay in England.  He is the author of two books, Twelve Steps to Spiritual Health and Life Spirit. Rev Usher has three adult daughters from his first marriage, and in August 2016 married the Rev Vail Weller, who now works for the Unitarian Universalist Association. They currently live in San Mateo, California.

The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at Posada de la Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15, and welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The meeting room is wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit our website at
