In the 19th Century, Unitarian leaders proclaimed ideas like ‘the progress of mankind onward and upward forever’ and ‘the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.’ It was a time of optimism, utopianism, and certainty about forward progress. These ideas linger in our Unitarian Universalist practice. Does this belief in progress serve us? What might it mean to be People of Hope when we can point to some areas of progress, but also know that some things are not getting better at all? Rev. Rachel will explore what it means to be faithful, hopeful, and honest all at once, using ideas from new Unitarian Universalist theological scholarship.
