We welcome the Rev. Dr. Dorothy Emerson to our pulpit. She writes that “the 1960s introduced many cultural changes that still influence us today, as we continue to struggle with issues of freedom, equality, peace, and love. What can we learn from this era about the challenges of creating a culture based on Unitarian Universalist values and principles?”
The Rev. Dr. Dorothy May Emerson is a semi-retired Unitarian Universalist minister, who has served both in the parish and community. Her recent ministry includes coordinating the UU Rainbow History Project, to document how UUs became welcoming to LGBTQ folks and co-founding of UU Class Conversations, to inspire UU congregations to become more class-inclusive and diverse. Her memoir, Sea Change: the unfinished agenda of the 1960s, will be available for purchase after the service. Her previous books include: Called to Community: New Directions in UU Ministry; Standing Before Us: Unitarian Universalist Women and Social Reform 1776-1936; and the curriculum Becoming Women of Wisdom: Marking the Passage into the Crone Years.
