Clarence Skinner was one of the greatest Universalist theologians of his
time. John Haynes Holmes was one of the most influential Unitarian
ministers of his time. Both are held as founders of the Community Church of
Boston. In the mid 1960's the Unitarians and the Universalists came
together to form the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
This church has always held a role of pushing the margins within the
religious community. We will discuss what our relationship is to Unitarian
Jason Lydon is our Congregational Director. He was raised in both Christian
communities and in Unitarian Universalist churches. Jason theologically
considers himself a Universalist Humanist and finds deep ties to the roots
of the Community Church movements in New York and Boston.
