Its time for another sermon about our history just to remind us that we do have one, as we begin this new year. The following words by the man who brought Universalism to these shores sums it all up. John Murray said,
“Go out into the highways and byways of American, your new country. Give the people, blanketed with a decaying and crumbling Calvinism, something of your new vision. You may possess only a small light but uncover it, let it shine, use it in order to bring more light and understanding to the hearts and minds of men and women. Give them not hell, but hope and courage. Do not push them deeper into their theological despair, but preach the kindness and everlasting love of God.”
Now, some of you may have known or may not have known that John Murray was a trinitarian Universalist. A sense of confidence in both divinity and humanity is a part of Universalism. Murray believed that human courage and the kindness of the Universe were central to the faith of the Universalist.
