Rev. Bill Gupton
10:30 a.m., In Person, Outside, at Heritage UU Church.
(Viewing by livestream will also be available.)
Our congregation, which was founded in 1827 as the First Universalist Society of Cincinnati, has always had an interesting relationship with Unitarian Universalism (which was created in 1961 by the joining of the Universalists and the Unitarians). For one thing, our congregational ancestors voted against that merger. Until 1985, when we moved into our brand new building on Newtown Road in Anderson Township, the word “Unitarian” wasn’t even in our church’s name. For generations, we’ve kept ourselves rather removed from the inevitable vagaries and volatility of denominational debate and discussion.
This morning’s in-person worship service will be part history lesson, part “present” lesson, and part future speculation. As the present-day Unitarian Universalist Association seeks to navigate its way – and be a leader – in our current world, where do we fit in? Where do we want to fit in? What’s going on in the UUA? Rev. Bill will offer his thoughts on these timely questions.
Parents and guardians please note that today is the first day of our fall Religious Education program.
Worship Associate: Bill Lyon.
