03/18/2018: We The People

10:30am-11:30am, KUUF sanctuary, John Fahey will speak this Sunday.

“We the people” comes from the definition of democracy as a “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” Abraham Lincoln used this definition in his Gettysburg Address, but he was adapting a definition that Unitarian minister Theodore Parker often used, that democracy was “government of all the people, by all the people, for all the people.

Unitarian Universalist churches have fascinating polity, theology, and history.  At the end of the day, it still comes back to “We the people”.

Our speaker, John Fahey, is a long time member of East Shore Unitarian  Church in Bellevue and a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry.
