What Could the 9th Principle Be?

Online Event

Many congregations are adopting an 8th Principle of Unitarian Universalism, which calls us to anti-racism, the beloved community, and accountability. What if there was a 9th Principle? What still needs to be said? What is missing from who we say we are, and how can we make that real?
The Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson is the Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church, Rockford, IL, where he has served since 2008. He spent his teenage years at East Shore (you know his mom, Wenda Collins), before attending Whitman College, Meadville Lombard Theological School and Iliff School of Theology. He is the author of Newborn Bards: A Theology of Preaching for Unitarian Universalists.

Good King Wenceslas

Online Event

Good King Wenceslas has long been my favorite Christmas Carol, partly because it includes a verse with my name in it, but far more because of its poignant social outreach message in a medieval context, its crisp, clear images, and its lovely melody.
