Universalism and Colonialism

Loading Events

Our Universalist forebear, the Rev. John Murray was the first person to preach Universalism in “the new world.” That took place on Sunday morning, September 30, 1770, in the chapel built by a farmer named Thomas Potter. The Universalist message of the power of love was good news to many who heard it. Our congregation wouldn’t be here without it. But what of the indigenous peoples upon whose land the Universalists built their churches and homes? Today we honor John Murray Day and explore the upcoming Indigenous Peoples Day with a new vision of what our world could be. The UUCW Choir provides beautiful music for the service today.
