Tempest in a Boston Teacup
Sermon by Peter Hughes.
We'll be travelling back in time with a dramatic presentation of a play, written by Rev. Dr. Peter Hughes, based upon the record of a meeting of Unitarian ministers in 1843 at which, over tea, the fate of the radical clergyman Theodore Parker was decided. The result of that meeting ever afterward defined the way that Unitarians applied the principle of tolerance and dealt with dissent.
Please join us for this rare glimpse into Unitarian history, in which Parker bravely puts forward his understanding of religion, which differs from that of his colleagues.
