This week at Love from the start.

Theologian Rebecca Ann Parker urges us to take love more seriously. "It is not sufficient to relegate love to a few moments of sentiment or to celebrate it in effusive accolades about the compassion of the American people," she writes. "We need to love from the start — not as an emergency strategy when everything has gone wrong."

Also this week: Jane Greer writes that the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta has a distinctive flaming chalice sculpture — a phoenix rising from the flames, a symbol of the congregation's rebirth half a century ago. In the news, Don Skinner reports on two UU churches that were damaged by the flooding that affected the mid-Atlantic states in the last week of June. He also reports on tree-planting evangelist Phil Shulman, who is rallying groups to plant ten trees each. And Sonja Cohen rounds up other news stories about UUs and their congregations for the news blog.

Dr. Parker talks about religion (non-UU of course) opposing the European scientific revolution. Some people think the religion-science relationship during the reformation - counter-reformation was more complex than that. Alister McGrath covers this topic briefly.

ps in my next life I hope to do history of religion - missed it this time around.
