Sermon delivered by Reverend Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman on June 5, 2011. Rev. Rahman shares her circuitous spiritual odyssey beginning with her childhood religion in the Baptist church, her God-is-Dead period, 10 years as a devout practicing Muslim, her non-denominational period, and now 19 years of service in the vineyard of Unitarian Universalism. "If Unitarian Universalism had not existed, I would have had to invent it," she laughingly states.
Mystical humanist/womanist/post-colonial feminist Unitarian Universalist is how she describes herself on a good day! She recently tackled the question, "How does my nationality, race, gender, class and sexual orientation shape how I make meaning of the sacred and holy in my life and how have I come to name that?"
