A liberal religious haven that cherishes the exploring mind and welcomes all souls.
Sunday’s Service – June 24 at 10:30 AM
“The Sacred and the Profane” The sacred and profane are distinctions used in the academic study of religion to analyze and understand human activity designated as religious. They can also be used to describe certain ideas and practices in Unitarian Universalism, in order to give a focus and depth to spiritual identity. Rev. Dr. Brent A. Smith, guest speaker.
Rev. Dr. Brent A. Smith is an Associate Professor in the Religious Studies Program at Grand Valley State University, teaching classes such as Religions of the World, Religion and Popular Culture, and Sacred Texts and serving as Coordinator of the Religious Studies Program he helped to create in 2013. He earned his graduate degrees from the University of Chicago Divinity School in 1983 and Meadville/Lombard Theological School in 1984. He was ordained into the UU ministry in 1983, and in over 26 years in the parish ministry served congregations in Milwaukee, Tulsa, and Grand Rapids.
