Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Benton County


This Sunday, May 20, join us for another look at May’s theme when Suzanne Miltich delivers “Freedom From and Freedom To” by Rev. Peter Frederichs, Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County, Media, Pennsylvania. There are two kinds of freedom. Freedom from (negative freedom) and freedom to (positive freedom). The splitting of freedom into this dual context goes back at least to Kant and was examined and defended in depth by Isaiah Berlin in the 1950s and ’60s.

These philosophers generally used the two different categories of freedom for discussion and debate, but we’ll explore it from a Unitarian Universalist’s perspective. The way in which thinking about the difference between freedom from and freedom to can help us understand more about our own personal journeys.

Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee and and socializing or stay after the service!

Sunday School is available for children with a Unitarian Universalist adaptation of Jerome Berryman’s book, “Spirit Play” as the primary resource. We structure the morning based on the Montessori approach. As in Montessori, the key elements are the classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own activities after an initial lesson.

See upcoming services for specific service details.
