First Unitarian Church is a liberal, progressive religious community. We come together for support in living lives of integrity, service and love. Together we are building a beloved community that affirms a free and responsible search for truth and meaning and supports our spiritual growth.

Sunday Service Information
This Sunday, October 16, 2016, Karen Andersen, “Us and Them: How our Morals Bind Us and Blind Us”
“Us and them. And after all we’re just ordinary men.”-Pink Floyd
“May you live in interesting times,” is an old, probably apocryphal, Chinese curse. If you ever thought you didn’t understand what that meant, our current political drama has done a fine job of making that curse quite clear in its intent. (Maybe we should build a Great Wall…oh…forget it.) This week, as a precursor to a discussion at 12:30, I will talk about the moral psychology behind what makes liberals and conservatives different in their thinking and approach to politics, and present a few ideas about how to build a bridge and start a conversation with people who don’t think like you do.
