Three Paths, One Way: Pentecostalism, Unitarian Universalism, and Intimations of Liberation

Stoicism/Epicureanism and the Way of All Flesh

Rev. Dr. David Breeden

Date: November 18, 2022 

Location: King’s Chapel Parish House 

Respondent: Rev. Shawn Newton, First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto 

The growing number of religiously unaffiliated has many religious leaders looking for ways to innovate even as ancient traditions gain in popularity. 

The Great Awakenings, the Cane Ridge Revival, Azusa Street. Nowadays, millions in the United States and hundreds of millions in the larger world embrace charismatic movements, while liberal religious and post-Christian movements wither. Is “a great gulf fixed” between them, or might liberal traditions be missing something hidden in plain sight? 

Rev. Dr. David Breeden is Senior Minister at First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis. Raised Pentecostal, he discovered humanism as an adult.
