The story of Unitarian Universalism is a fascinating tale. Unitarianism and Universalism started as reform movements within Christianity—Unitarianism, in Trinitarian Europe of the 1560’s, and Universalism, in America in response to the fire and brimstone theology of the Great Awakening. On December 3rd, Dr. Robert Clegg will visit the UUCC to examine the history of Unitarians and Universalists in America, looking at their theological roots, their histories as denominations, and how their contrasting structure and polities were reconciled so the 1961 merger could happen. Dr. Clegg will conclude with a challenge about how Unitarian Universalism can remain relevant in the twenty-first century.
Bob Clegg is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick, Maryland. He is pursuing a Masters of Divinity at Wesley Theological Seminary and a Graduate Certificate in Non-Profit Management at American University in Washington, DC. He is executive director of Justice Jobs of Maryland, a recently formed non-profit. Next summer, Justice Jobs plans to open a job placement office in Baltimore, serving people who are reentering society from incarceration and addictions. Bob and his wife, Connie, live in New Market MD, with their three cats who make all the important decisions.
