This week at uuworld.org: New religious humanism.
William R. Murry proclaims the emergence of a new religious humanism among Unitarian Universalists, one that "offers depth, meaning, and purpose without sacrificing intellectual honesty or the spiritual dimension." Murry, former president of Meadville Lombard Theological School, is the author of a new book, Reason and Reverence: Religious Humanism for the Twenty-first Century.
In the news, Don Skinner writes that many Unitarian Universalists protested President Bush's announcement of a troop "surge" in Iraq. UUA President William Sinkford, in a public letter to Bush, said the announcement "stunningly disregards the wishes of the American people, the advice of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group."
And Sonja Cohen offers her weekly roundup of Unitarian Universalists in the media at uuworld.org's news blog.
