Beyond Categorical Thinking: What This Moment in Time, a T-Rex Named Penelope, Pittsburgh, and a Theologian Can Teach Us About the Future of religion and Our Commitment to Equity and Justice

Religion, including Unitarian Universalism, is at a moment in time. Can it survive? And what must we do in order to survive? What must we do? We’ll explore our place in today’s world and why it is metaphorical meteorites, and not a comet, that could wipe us out.
