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.

Sunday, July 15, 2018: "THE END OF UNITARIANISM"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan

Worship Associate:  Steve Benton

What is the purpose of religion? One answer is: To serve through beliefs and practices as a guide to a life of coherence, integrity, and meaning. So what does the term "Unitarian" tell us about our religious purpose or beliefs or practices? What is the end of Unitarianism?

And as a religious tradition grounded in evolution and development, when does the lifespan development of the term Unitarianism come to an end? When will it have served and outlived its purpose? What is the shelf-life of the name "Unitarian"?

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