Beyond Categorical Thinking – Eddy Carroll, guest speaker

Eddy Carroll, from the First Universalist Church in Denver, will share the Unitarian Universalist vision of everyone fully participating in the nation’s social and economic life. Prophetic leaders from both the Unitarian and Universalist denominations were among the foremost advocates of abolition, women’s suffrage, civil rights, and prison, hospital, and labor reform. Today we lead in welcoming of gays, lesbians,bisexuals and transgendered persons into our membership and ministry. At times, however, Unitarian Universalists have practiced the very evils we sought to reform. Eddy will share our history and engage the congregation in questions and answers in an hour-an-a-half long service, one intended to broaden our horizons as we search for our next minister and move toward eventual “settled” ministry.
