Sermon delivered by Rev. William G. Sinkford on November 30, 2008. Rev. Sinkford was elected as the seventh president of the Unitarian Universalist Association in June, 2001. His presidency has been distinguished by his social justice work, particularly his efforts to defend oppressed peoples. He is an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq, a nationally recognized champion of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, and a passionate advocate for the people of Darfur.
Under Sinkford’s leadership, the UUA became the first national denomination to join the New Sanctuary Movement, and last year the denomination formally voted to work to combat global warming. He has been a staunch defender of religious pluralism and church/state separation. A deeply spiritual man, Sinkford has freely shared his own spiritual journey and called on Unitarian Universalism to reclaim a language of reverence.
