First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany


Sunday, March 8   “Pentacostal UUs?” Rev. Sam Trumbore

The merger of an African American Pentecostal Universalist church with All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma has created a the most fascinating social and religious experiment that has ever happened in Unitarian Universalism.  Their senior minister, Marlin Lavanhar, believes they are discovering a new way to be fully Unitarian Universalist worshipping in a style many of us might not have considered possible … or acceptable in our tradition.  We’ll explore his claims and consider this new vision of what might be a future direction in our movement.
