This Sunday: “Cathedral of the World”

The Rev. Dr. Forrester Church (1948-2009) was senior minister at the Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City, Just before his death, Rev. Church completed his last book, Cathedral of the World, which is a statement of his liberal faith.

Rick Spradlin

Our lay leader Rick Spradlin will lead this Sunday’s service, and he’ll also talk about Cathedrals of the World. Rick is a special education teacher and a lifelong student of religion, philosophy and ethics. He loves to tackle tough questions, especially regarding faith and spirituality for atheists, agnostics, humanists and other non-traditional seekers.

We welcome people of all faiths and philosophical traditions that respect the dignity of all people. Visitors are always welcome. Sunday morning services are about an hour long. They are centered around a talk, like Rick’s, that’s usually followed by a short question-and-answer session. Services also include some music, some meditation, and opportunities (always optional) to share your thoughts.

Free childcare is available from 9:15 a.m. to noon. Here’s this Sunday’s schedule.

  • 9:15 a.m. Adult Religious Education: “What is Buddhism Really About?” led by Joanie Andras.
  • 9:15 a.m. Children’s Religious Education.
  • 10:15 a.m. Coffee and conversation before the service.
  • 10:45 a.m. The Sunday service, this week with service leader Rick Spradlin, who will also present his talk: “Forrest Church’s Cathedral of the World.”
