"A Liberal Theology of Evil"
Rev. Thom Belote, preaching
Liberal theology has tended to embrace a positive view of human nature and a hopeful stance towards the future. Liberal theology has tended to struggle to account for the reality of evil. What would a mature faith say about evil? And how would this faith speak to these times?
MUSIC NOTES: The Community Church Choir, including pianist Ariadna Nacianceno and guest pianist Kristin Trangsrud, will be singing a thrilling piece from well-known UU composer Nick Page, based on a poem by Rev. Rebecca Parker, entitled “Choose to Bless the World.” Deborah Klinger will be the vocal soloist. This week's virtual choir will offer a variety of hymns, familiar and less so.
