Sunday, March 18: – “Kicking It Old School” – The Rev. Brian Mason
Historically, the church was a centerpiece of American culture. Just take a moment and think where churches are usually located: the centers of town. One of the most important aspects of the church is to serve as a community center, a place where people gather to envision ways to achieve goodness for all townspeople. In a sense, the role of the church is, borrowing a phrase from recent trends in food, to be hyperlocal. I firmly believe that if churches are to remain a vital part of American culture we must consider how we, collectively, impact the towns and peoples we live amongst. I think it’s time we do something, how shall I say, Old School? It is my prayer that the church considers more ways we might partner with people, organizations, and others within our city to more deeply live our principles, as Unitarian Universalists, in our great city, amongst its fine people.
