NEW! Unitarian Universalist Book Study. Meets for the first time on Sunday, October 15 from 11:30 to 12:45 following the service. We will discuss Elite: Uncovering Classism in UU History by Mark W. Harris, Minister of the First Parish Church in Watertown, Massachusetts. The book is available from Amazon or the UUA Bookstore (Available as an ebook as well).
This exploration of the events and trends that have led UU congregations to serve primarily upper middle class, educated and professional people includes the story of the union of the Universalist working classes and the Unitarian elites as well as some troubling information about a cultural establishment to whom the words eugenics and social control were not foreign.
