Sermon delivered by Jeremy Elliott, Intern Minister, Feb. 24, 2008.
The Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, President of Starr King School for the Ministry, teaches that the history of Unitarianism and Universalism in America has been a history of unleashed soul power. From our founding, we have endeavored to cultivate all of the faculties of the soul to liberate, nurture, and heal our world. The Rev. Dr. William Ellery Channing spoke of the importance of “unfolding? these powers to find our salvation. Henry David Thoreau challenged humanity to “live life deliberately? to be truly alive to the world.
This Sunday, we will explore and celebrate the lineages of ordinary prophets of liberal religion who shaped the movement we have inherited. How might we offer the powers of our souls to change the world?
