Adult Education Program

Our adult class offerings feed the soul and refresh the mind. Forums, discussions, and classes on a variety of topics are held throughout the week.

An Opportunity to learn about Our Unitarian and Universalist Heritage

class

Please join our Ministerial Intern, Stephanie McCullough-Cain in learning about Unitarian Universalism’s rich and complex history! Stephanie will be facilitating two sessions; the first on Thursday March 19th from 7pm to 8:30, and the second will be Thursday March 26th from 7pm to 8:30. The first session will be focused on the beginnings of American Unitarianism; beginning in Philadelphia with roots in Polish Socinianism, and in Boston growing out of the rising tensions between the Congregationalists (Trinitarians) and the Arian liberal Christians (Unitarians). We’ll also look at the Transcendentalist Movement which began in the early 19th century; Unitarians Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller and Theodore Parker and their influence in the movement will be explored. Session two will focus on American Universalism starting with Englishman John Murray who brought Universalism to America and other remarkable Universalists; Elhanan Winchester, Hosea Ballou, Olympia Brown and famous Universalist women who worked for social reform.
