02/24/2019: Moral Universe of Theodore Parker

10:30 – 11:30 KUUF Sanctuary, Rev. Carol McKinley: Unitarian minister Theodore Parker, who lived from 1810 to 1860, was an ardent supporter of abolition, women’s rights, prison reform, and treatment of the mentally ill. His sermons and advocacy work rankled the religious establishment, even as it delighted the thousands who flocked to hear him speak. His words inspired Martin Luther King Jr., and all those who believe that the arc of justice does indeed bend toward justice.

The Reverend Carol McKinley is an affiliated community minister with the Olympia UU Congregation, where she coordinates its Faith in Action Ministry. She also serves on the Pacific Northwest District Healthy Congregations Team.
