Living Our Faith Out Loud

In the midst of these defining times, in the midst of tumult - societal, political and climate related - Unitarian Universalism offers a powerful message of both compassion and interdependence. How can we live these values in bold courageous ways that have the power to make a measurable difference today and for the future? The service will be followed by refreshments and Q&A

William Ellery Channing Preaches "Unitarian Christianity" in the Age of American Slavery

We will explore the relevance of Wm. Ellery Channing’s Unitarian Christianity for today’s debates on slavery and racism. This 1819 ordination sermon is foundational for our American Unitarianism. A leading Liberal Boston preacher of the day, he presents some of our concepts. We read the Bible as we would read any other book.  In that time slavery and King Cotton were omnipresent. We will see that these issues underlie his remarks. Calvinists – fundamentalists of that day – taught predestination, the damnation of infants and other forms of mystification.(1) Channing however said the separation of the elect from the “abandoned of God,” was nothing more than pride, the will to power. The poor, including the enslaved, partake of universal human dignity. Some of Channing’s highest examples in life were enslaved Africans.

1492… 1619… 2019 

“Don’t sneak up on me, colonizer!” This is one of the most popular lines from the movie “Black Panther.” It was a very funny line – and more than a little bittersweet. The pain caused by the displacement of indigenous people and the enslavement of Africans in this country is still felt today. How do we grapple with our complex past, heal our present and ensure our future? All are welcome to stay after the service for a showing and discussion of the movie “Black Panther.”
