Kosmos: Remembering a Future for Unitarian Universalism

The Core of Our Faith, and How to Share It

Rev. Stephen Kendrick

Date: May 11, 2016 

Location: First Church Boston 

Rev. Kendrick elaborated on his deeply held belief that the spiritual core of the Unitarian Universalist faith lies in the Transcendentalist tradition, which remains UUism's "hidden strength." For Rev. Kendrick, "The issue is not institutional survival, but recovering a spiritual message that might make UUism's survival worth fighting for... If we still have something vital and necessary to say, then we will find the means to testify to the truth within us. The vision of Kosmos is both spiritual and ecological and rises above the old (and tiresome) arguments about the word "God," and speaks to many who are floundering in their faith, resentful of organized religion and yet still wistful, still wondering, about the powers that fuel the heavens, not to mention the mysteries of our hearts. I don't think this story is over. But we have some remembering to do."
