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.”
