Sermon delivered by Rev. Dr. Dorothy Emerson on June 10, 2018. The 1960s introduced many cultural changes that still influence us today as we continue to struggle with issues of freedom, equality, peace and love. What can we learn from this era about the challenges of creating a culture based on Unitarian Universalist values and principles?
The Rev. Dr. Dorothy May Emerson is a semi-retired Unitarian Universalist minister, who has served both in the parish and community. Her recent ministry includes the co-founding of UU Class Conversations, to inspire UU congregations to become more class-inclusive and diverse. Her recently published memoir, Sea Change: the unfinished agenda of the 1960s, will be available for purchase after the service. Her previous books include Called to Community: New Directions in UU Ministry; Standing Before Us: Unitarian Universalist Women and Social Reform 1776-1936; and the curriculum Becoming Women of Wisdom: Marking the Passage into the Crone Years.
