Where Does the Uni in Unitarian Come From?          Lay Speaker: CJ Rhoads

Our great country was founded on the principle of freedom of religion, an idea which came from Transylvania, of all places. In 1568 Transylvania’s Court Preacher, Frances David, converted King John Sigismund to Unitarianism (i.e. belief in “One God”, not three persons), because there was no support in scripture for the concept of the Trinity. He also convinced the King that people should be allowed to choose what they believe rather than forcing everyone to believe the same thing (a novel concept in 1568). He coined the phrase “We need not think alike to love alike”. CJ will explore these ideas and how essential these basic tenets are to our collective well-being
