Presented via Zoom!
Unitarian Universalists celebrate our diversity of spiritual and theological beliefs. However, we do have one thing in common — we love a good sermon. Are you familiar with the three 19th century sermons that are universally acclaimed as the three greatest UU sermons of all time (or at least tjhree watershed sermons in our journey)? Please join Keith Johnson and Rev. Kevin as we read portions out loud and discuss the sermons of William Ellery Channing, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker.
For each class Keith will provide a brief introduction to the sermon. Next, everyone will read out loud selected passages from each sermon. We will invite your immediate reaction to the sermon. Lastly, Kevin will close by reviewing the lasting historical impact of these sermons.
Sound interesting? Please contact Keith Johnson at email@example.com to register. No need to prepare for this class but if you are so inclined you may find and read the sermons online or review Three Prophets of Religious Liberalism: Channing, Emerson, Parker by Conrad Wright. A copy is available in the church library.
