January 3 Sunday Service at 10:30 AM
David Moffat, Writer and Historian at the House of the Seven Gables
In this new year we face religious freedom challenges that go back to our founding as a nation, when First Amendment issues were front and center. As the American colonies came into violent conflict with their mother empire, the Unitarian church was forming in the United Kingdom and the rebellious colonies. David Moffat (who spoke in 2014 on the life and work of Joseph Priestley) will look at the role that Unitarian ideals played in the struggle. He will look at the heads of movements: Richard Price, Thomas Jefferson and the Addams’s, as well as the common person caught up in that world- changing time.
