Reinventing Unitarian Universalism:

Sacramento’s Sesquicentennial & Beyond

Establishing liberal religion in California, far from its New England roots, presented both challenges and opportunities to the brave souls in the capital city. This creative reinvention of Unitarian Universalism says a lot about our past, but it also suggests directions for the future of our living tradition as well. Come hear a wonderful preacher, storyteller, and scholar at our morning service, and stay for lunch.

12:00 Forum:

Pirates, Puritans and Prophets on the Pacific Coast:

Explorations in Unitarian Universalist Identity

Dr. Ritchie explores some of the most pervasive themes in UU identity, elucidating the unique experience of the Pacific Coast in relationship to the questions that forged our living tradition.

Lunch will served between the service and forum ~ donation $5
