The Rev. Linda Spiers – February 23, 2020

It was Jesus of Nazareth all right, the man they’d tramped many a dusty mile with, whose mother and brothers they knew, the one they’d seen as hungry, tired, footsore as the rest of them. But it was also the Messiah, the Christ, in his glory. It was the holiness of the man shining through his humanness, his face so afire with it they were almost blinded.

The Rev. Geoffrey Smith – January 19, 2020

In 1871 a Unitarian minister named Theodore Parker, spoke out with words that have echoed to this day.  He spoke in opposition to the rising calls for segregation in the post-war South.  Parker said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. Evil may so shape events that Caesar will occupy a palace and Christ a cross, but that same Christ arose and split history into A.D. and B.C., so that even the life of Caesar must be dated by his name.”
