This week at uuworld.org: Mary Magdalene.
The Rev. Liz Lerner likes the way The Da Vinci Code has provoked all kinds of questions about the origins of Christianity, especially about Mary Magdalene. Unfortunately, the novel and the movie are wildly misleading. She takes us on a quest for the historical Mary Magdalene.
In the news, Don Skinner reports on organizations working to protect immigrant workers' rights in Mississippi and Louisiana with funding from the UUA-UUSA Gulf Coast Relief Fund. And Sonja Cohen's news blog locates the first Unitarian Universalist "U2charist" I've heard about, a superintendent who plagiarized a UU minister's sermon in a recent op-ed, and more from around the web.
(Psst: The Summer issue comes out later this week.)
