Kosmos: Remembering a Future for Unitarian Universalism

The Truth Will Set You Free, but First It Will Depress You...

Rev. Stephen Kendrick

Date: April 27, 2016 

Location: First Church Boston 

Rev. Kendrick presented an overview of where American religion stands (or limps) right now, and where Unitarian Universalism fits within that somewhat depressing picture. Says Rev. Kendrick, "I do this not to further daunt us, but to help break us free from denial, magical thinking, and fatalistic (or even cynical) acceptance. And any one of these responses will keep us from doing what needs to be done, and thinking clearly about how to move forward. And we will end with some very good news indeed, because what we need in the refreshment and revitalization of UUism is in fact already present within our tradition; it is just that we have strangely conspired to jointly forget our past."
