I am a Unitarian, not by birth, but by intellectual discovery. I trace the roots of Unitarianism back to Francis David and the Edict of Torda with of course some proto-Unitarians before him. I am interested in religion in general and I respect the efforts of religions to create community and attempt to understand creation and the nature or existence of god.
I am not "born again", nor do I need the promise of an afterlife to motivate myself. My personal conduct would not alter if I discovered there was or was not an afterlife. My religion is very personal and I attempt to highlight here some of the key principles for me.
Statements of Religious Belief
In the spring of 2015, six parishioners of King’s Chapel wrote statements about their personal religious beliefs that were published in Between Sundays in conjunction with the Sunday Forums on “The Religion of King’s Chapel – A Living Legacy.” The forums were a series of lectures on three major religious roots: Anglican, Unitarian, and Independent. The lectures were given by the Reverend Dr. Carl Scovel, Dr. Daniel McKanan, and the Reverend Joy Fallon (recordings of the lectures are posted on the KC website under Education). The statements of religious belief were produced by Denton Crews, Julie Hyde, Louise Perkins, Charles Perry, and Peter Sexton.
