Building A New Way
This service explores what lessons our Universalist ancestor, John Murray, has for us as we work to build a better world. Born in England in 1741 and raised as a Calvanist, John Murray emigrated to America in 1770 to follow the Universalist denomination. He went on to serve as pastor of the Universalist Society of Boston and as a chaplain in the Revolutionary War. He is often referred to as the father of American Universalism.
