SUNDAY, October 15

Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister. “The Courage to Listen ”

What does it mean to listen deeply to another person? How could you improve your listening skills? How does our ability to listen to one another contribute to our health and well-being as a religious community?

SUNDAY, October 22

Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister. “The Polarity of Grace and Works”

Yes, we are acceptable just as we are. Yes, we have responsibilities to others. As we prepare to celebrate the five hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, we will explore this polarity of grace and obligation.

SUNDAY, October 29 

Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister. “The Courage to Speak your Mind and Stand Your Ground: Celebrating the Five Hundredth Anniversary of Martin Luther's Courageous Call for Reform”

The Protestant Reformation began five hundred years ago on October 31, 1517, when Martin Luther posted ninety-five theological propositions on the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther intended that these ninety-five theological propositions would make great topics for debate –but standing on the threshold between the medieval world and the modern world, Martin Luther probably could not foresee the ways that the Protestant Reformation would reshape the religious, political, and cultural landscape of Europe for hundreds of years. What issues were at stake? How has the Protestant Reformation shaped Unitarian Universalism?




You are invited and welcome to come to our church. We hope this brief introduction can help you.
