My friend, colleague, and (yes) minister, the Rev. Adam Tierney-Eliot has begun a blog, named Unity recently. Give it a look.
Well, I’m back from doing the two-Demosthenian wedding I mentioned before. While I don’t think it’s quite right to talk about the couple from the blog, I do wish them a lifetime of happiness and must say it was a very well put-together affair. Church-wise, some small notices. I attended Sunday worship at the hoary… Continue reading Back from Georgia
Well, Hubby and I are in our new apartment and are loving it. More truly urban than where we were, even though the digs are smaller. Moving about killed us, though. I still can’t believe we had 109 boxes of stuff, plus furnishings. Most of what went in the boxes was books and papers. Makes… Continue reading Moved, travelling
Hubby and I are up to our eyeballs in boxes, anticipating the move to our new Logan Circle apartment this weekend. We’ll be celebrating my thirty-fifth birthday simply: cake and Chinese takeout. (My preferred way of easy celebrating.) Lastly, I’m having computer trouble and have to bum access. Three reasons I’m not blogging much, in… Continue reading Boxes, birthday, and spam
OK, I’m officially annoyed that not a single Christian event at GA has been covered on the UUA website. I didn’t expect they’d all be covered, or even that all that would be eventually covered would be done by now. But none? And if it is none now, we (the reading public) can’t expect many… Continue reading GA coverage annoyance
Universalists, like St. Paul, have a conception of God which necessitates a belief in the salvation of all men, especially in the salvation of those who believe in Him as He has revealed Himself to us in His Son Jesus Christ. They believe, first of all, that there is one God, and only one; that… Continue reading Sweetser’s Universalism Explained, part two

Pastor of the Universalist Church of the Messiah, Broad St. and Montgomery Ave., Philadelphia, Pa. 1893. “To this end we labor and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, epecially of them that believe.” I Tim 4:10… Continue reading Sweetser’s Universalism Explained, part one
5. Universalism believes in the final harmony of all souls with God. This is the conclusion of the whole matters as I have already indicated in my opening remarks. There remains to say but this: We are all facing eternity. We must go into the next life exactly as we leave this. If we have… Continue reading Bisbee’s Why I Am a Universalist, part seven and last
Somehow Philocrites had a moment to post this in an earlier entry’s comments section: You’ll be happy to know, Scott, that a toast was made in your honor over dinner this evening by H.P., T.S., P.B., J.B.-S., E.K.H., and myself. You may amuse yourself by figuring out the owners of these initials… Well, that made… Continue reading You know who your friends are . . .
Well, ’tis convention season. (On of the reasons I’m preaching at the Swedenborgians next week is that their convention starts next week.) Next up: the Presbyterian Church (USA). Some how I missed the news of their huge hit in membership when it came out earlier this month. According to statistics released by the Office of… Continue reading Well, our GA should be cheerier than the Presbyterians’
