This week at uuworld.org: Environmentalist churches.
Don Skinner writes about congregational initiatives to put environmental stewardship at the heart of UU church life.
In the news, Don Skinner reports that the UUA-UUSC Gulf Coast Relief Fund has distributed another $132,000 to organizations in Louisiana and Mississippi. He also reports that Starr King School for the Ministry has announced a "seminary for the laity" — online leadership training courses for volunteer and paid congregational leaders. And Sonja Cohen tracks Unitarian Universalists in the media for UU World's news blog.
From the archives for this Martin Luther King Jr Day: Rosemary Bray McNatt wonders what might have happened if King, a theological liberal, had cast his lot with the Unitarians during his Boston years. Thomas Mikelson reflects on the magnitude and ethical challenge of King's vision of God. And I describe the Unitarian Universalist Association's role in the 1965 Selma voting right campaign, where two UUs gave their lives; a recording [RealAudio] of King's eulogy for the Rev. James Reeb [pdf] surfaced for the first time in late 2000.
