October 6–Some of the Stories We Tell Ourselves with Rev. Dr. Nicole Kirk

We are honored to host the Rev. Dr. Nicole Kirk,  who serves as the Rev. Dr. J. Frank and Alice Schulman professor in Unitarian Universalist History at Meadville Lombard Seminary in Chicago.  As we launch our October focus on “Roots,” Dr. Kirk will join Rev. Sean and reflect on our Unitarian Universalist stories. Here is how she describes the service:

“Storytelling is a powerful way to shape individual and community identity.  And like other groups, Unitarian Universalists have a set of stories that help shape our self-understanding. What is puzzling is how some stories are not based in our history.This Sunday come explore the story of Jenkin Lloyd Jones and other spirited Unitarians who lived the story of outreach and missionary work—and how their story is a part of our story.”
