Revive with UU Christians in New York City.

I hope you'll consider joining me (and Peacebang and Mr Lively Tradition and a bunch of other fine people) in New York City November 2-5 for the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship's "Revival" conference at the Fourth Universalist Society, 160 Central Park West near the Natural History Museum. The theme this year is "Universalism: God's Reviving Grace." The keynote speakers are Jim Mulholland, co-author of If God Is Love: Rediscovering Grace in an Ungracious World, and Professor Gary Dorrien, author of The Making of American Liberal Theology: Crisis, Irony, and Postmodernity: 1950-2005. I'll be leading a Friday morning service of prayer and song in the spirit of the ecumenical Taizé Community in France; more about this soon.

Full-time adult registration is $150. A special $75 rate is available for seminarians and young adults (under 35). To register or to get information on one-day registration and rates for youth, visit the conference registration page at UUChristian.org.

Do you think the UUCF is learning more towards Universalism than Unitarianism?

I know the two schools of thought can go very easily hand-in-hand - and it is never an either / or situation - but I just get the impression (as a distant observer) that Universalism is voiced more these days.

Well Matt, certainly that's the theme for the Revival and the UUCF journal this year. Interestingly an article in the Universalist Herald mentions the recent popularity in books about Universalism recently, and of course the revival will feature one of the authors....so the timing is right for that theme.
Of course, the old UCA was unitarian since Ballou (as I like to joke, they were unitarian before the Unitarians), so they definately can go hand in hand
