ORIGINS of Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism in America: IMPLICATIONS for Liberal Religious Thought and Practice

  • Maritime Conference Center 692 Maritime Blvd Linthicum Heights, MD 21090 USA (map)

The 2019 Convocation of Unitarian Universalist Studies celebrates the 200th anniversary of William Ellery Channing’s sermon “Unitarian Christianity” and the 250th anniversary of John Murray’s arrival in North America. The theme looks at the theological and social justice implications of what they preached – not only in their time but in the decades that followed. The program includes plenary talks, papers, performances, and an award-winning sermon. There will also be a featured workshop on dismantling white supremacy as well as a panel on the Black UU Living History Project and another panel on the history of Berry Street Lecture.
