This week at uuworld.org: Mike Gravel's religion.
Michelle Deakin profiles human rights lawyer and Unitarian Universalist minister Karen Tse, who is helping to train public defenders in China and other countries as part of a global initiative to end the use of torture. The organization she leads, International Bridges to Justice, now works in six countries in Asia and Africa.
Columnist Doug Muder sits down with former Senator and current Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel, who has identified himself as a Unitarian Universalist since he entered politics in the 1960s (although he hasn't been affiliated with a congregation since he left Alaska in the early 1980s).
In the news, Jane Greer reports that the UUA Panel on Theological Education gave grants to two doctoral students in religious studies this year as part of an effort to revitalize aid to scholars. Jane also reports that a fire in the sanctuary of the Throop Memorial Church in Pasadena, Calif., appears to be arson. And Sonja Cohen tracks another week of Unitarian Universalists in the media.
