Out of the Flames

As terrorism and war rage in Israel and Gaza, as Russia continues it’s siege across Ukraine, as political, social, and theological conflict tear at the fabric of society, we scream, we tremble, we grieve. Let us pause and look to the past to perhaps better understand our present. Bitter division is nothing new.  This morning we will go back 470 years to when Michael Servetus was charged with heresy. His crime? He claimed that humanity is not totally depraved, as Calvin believed, but that humanity is capable of infinite goodness. As a result, he was burned at the stake by John Calvin. Michael Servetus was our first Unitarian martyr. Zoom access here. Order of Service and Announcements here.
