hold fast that which is good...

Tomorrow (May the 5th) marks the anniversary of William Ellery Channing's "Unitarian Christianity" sermon in Baltimore (given in 1819.) One of the most influential of American Sermons, it is nearly universally accepted as the point of reference for the beginning of "formal" Unitarianism in this country. I encourage all Unitarians to give it a read tomorrow (or today if you are reading this on the 5th.) It can be found online at: http://www.transcendentalists.com/unitarian_christianity.htm Blessings

Awesome! Tomorrow I can call it "Unitarian Day" and wear jeans to work for that instead of Cinco de Mayo!

:D

Well...I liked the sermon. I've read it before. And it has a lot more to do with the U.S. than Cinco de Mayo does, right?

Hi Tracie,
Its good to hear from you! Unitarian Day it is (but can I still eat piles of Mexican food today?)
Hope all is well and thanks for writing. Blessings, BU

Hi BU:

I am behind on reading your most excellent blog. Today is May 6 and on my blog I write about the fifth chapter of the Tao Te Ching and the last line of the chapter is "Hold on to the center".

Coincidence?

All the best,

David Markham
