I would like to call your attention to the “Other UU Podcasts” page where we are listing the offerings from other churches. There are a lot of great congregations represented there, but I am sure there are more who are putting out there sermons, Sunday services, or other events on the web.
If your UU church has a podcasts, or you know of others we should include, please let us know. You can just use the form on the contact page to drop us an email. We would be happy to include you.
Marc Adams, noted author and social justice activist, has written nine books, including The Preacher’s Sonand Do’s and Don’ts of Dealing with the Religious Right. After growing up as the gay son of a fundamentalist Baptist preacher, he founded HeartStrong, a non-profit offering support to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students persecuted in religious educational institutions. Adams is a widely respected authority on subjects including fundamentalism, the religious right and gay civil rights.
This message, delivered by the Reverend Danny Reed on March 18, addresses the issue that while our personal beliefs may vary, we tend to agree in providing the broadest table possible for our members and guests.
In this way, we hope to recognize human brokenness even as we celebrate the profound range of human ability, compassion, and insight. How can one congregation attract and honor such a wide continuum of members? What do we have to learn from both our diversity and our unity?
The sermon on Sunday, March 11, 2012 was delivered by our special guest, Rev. Dr. Stephan Papa, of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
