Sacred Service in Civic Space: Three Hundred Years of Community Ministry in Unitarian Universalism

sacred_parker_cover   Kathleen R. Parker

“To minister is to serve.” So begins the opening chapter of ‘Sacred Service in Civic Space,’ an historical account of the leadership provided by Unitarian Universalists in most of the social justice movements in American history. Parker describes who, how and why Unitarian Universalists have unrelentingly worked to humanize the criminal justice system, develop health and mental health services, end the nuclear arms race and work for peace and against war, abolish slavery and protect and legislate civil rights for minorities and all others disenfranchised or oppressed.  –  Leslie A.
