The Problem with Atonement

Many forms of Christianity today rely on an atonement theory that espouses the idea: “Christ died for our sins.” Usually it takes the form of God the Father sacrificing his Son to save humanity. Is there a better way to understand Jesus’ life and death? Tony’s sermon will argue that there is, and that it is present in our own Unitarian and Universalist history.

Rev. Dr. Tony Larsen has been pastor of Olympia Brown UU Church in Racine since 1975 (yes, that’s 42 years and probably a record!). He is an annual guest speaker at our Fellowship.
