Rev. Tracey Robinson-Harris will lead the service. Religious freedom is at the heart of Unitarian Universalism. It has deep roots in our history, connecting us to Unitarian King John Sigismund and to the Unitarianism of 16th century Transylvania (now part of Romania). This Sunday's sermon offers up a bit of our history, a trail of connection and explores the 21st century relevance of an edict (issued in 1568) which reads in part, "no one shall be reviled for his religion by anyone… and it is not permitted that anyone should threaten anyone else…"
