March 15: “Salvation for UUs” - Intern Minister Melissa Thomson
Hosea Ballou, Clarence Skinner, and Rebecca Parker are some of the wise UUs who have preached and written about the concept of redemptive suffering. If we do not believe in the Christian doctrine of atonement, how can we be “saved?” In her sermon this Sunday, Melissa Thomson will speak about a UU salvific theology of belonging in community.
A Message From Our Ministers
Throughout our county, people are looking for a place to connect with others and a place to be seen as a whole person. Finding these connections in a world of quick fixes and throw-away relationships is not easy.
We provide those places of deep connection –where people can connect to themselves, to others who hold similar experiences, and to efforts to address real problems faced by our neighbors and our planet. Increasingly, we also learn from the connections which can be made across difference. And within our community, you can receive inspiration, new ideas, affirmation and an embodiment of how we live together in the wider human family.
For more than 60 years, MDUUC has been a beacon in the community and a strong place for people of all generations—our children. We haven’t always done it the same way and we are gifted with a Living Tradition that changes with the new needs of our community. Come be part of what we are creating together!
