The unfulfilled dream - a link to a piece by David E. Bumbaugh

Readers of this blog may be interested in the following piece by David E. Bumbaugh as it addresses in the North American context some of the concerns I have with the way Unitarian communities have developed in the last fifty years.
The unfulfilled dream - We neglected the Universalist challenge of restating our core convictions in contemporary terms.

On another subject. I didn't preach last Sunday as I was finishing the research and finalising preparations for a course on 'End-of-life issues in Islam and Judaism' with my colleague Claire Henderson Davis which we delivered on Wednesday at the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead in association with the Royal Free Hospital. I'm glad to say the day went very well indeed.

However, we are fortunate to have in the congregation Ryan Sirmons who is currently training for the ministry of the United Church of Christ and he offered us an excellent address which you can find at his own blog. See link below - thanks Ryan.
