Darwin’s scientific studies, and continuing scientific research by scientists and writers during the 19th Century, challenged theological beliefs, and continue to do so to this day.
Come for a class in UU history as we explore “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Feel free to bring your own lunch. Light snacks will be provided.
Denise Benshoof offers UU 103 classes on the fourth Sunday of every other month. She goes in depth into historical events and people and how they relate to Unitarian Universalism.
