First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany


September 6, “Legacy of our 2nd U,” Rev. Phil Schulman
Universal Salvation is one of the two theological roots of our living tradition.  Rev. Phil Schulman will explore the submerger and reemergence of Universalism and will suggest how it’s leading us to offer a challenging and hopeful message of love and universal kinship.

Rev. Phil Schulman has been engaged since 1989 in a ministry of organizing and supporting communities of care, and has advocated for democracy, self-determination, holistic approaches to healing, peer support, nonviolence, and human rights. He is the founder of the “10 Tree Challenge,” which, in conjunction with the UU Ministry for Earth, was the impetus behind approximately forty congregations planting between three to four thousand trees. Phil is also passionate about Restorative Circles and Systems and believes they are the future of Unitarian Universalism.
