One of the significant issues in our Unitarian and Universalist histories was rejection of the doctrines of hell and the devil. Tony’s first sermon with us this summer will deal with the idea of Satan, and how he developed in late Judaism from being God’s prosecuting attorney to being God’s great enemy. This development tells us a lot about the human need to divide the world into simple categories of good and evil. Why might this be important today?
Rev. Dr. Tony Larsen recently retired as pastor of Olympia Brown UU Church in Racine. He served this role since 1975 (yes, that’s 42 years and probably a record!). He has been an annual guest speaker at our Fellowship, and we are looking forward to his spring, summer, and fall visits to UUFDC!
