Sunday, July 29, 2018: "HAVE WE REACHED THE END OF UNIVERSALISM?"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Susan Burnore

Two Sundays ago, we explored the question, "What is the end of Unitarianism?"  The same question about Universalism is important to us as it effects our own understanding of life and how to live.  What does  the term "Universalist" tell us about our religious purpose or beliefs or practices?  What is the end of Universalism?

And as a religious tradition grounded in a particular teleology - an understanding of the grand design of existence - how revelatory and relevant is the term "Universalist" to our journey and end goal?  When does the usefulness of the term "Universalist" come to an end?

This Sunday's sermon will raise these questions and invite you into discussion in the Sanctuary right after the service.
