Transient and Permanent

In 1841, Unitarian Theodore Parker preached a sermon “The Transient and Permanent in Christianity,” that created a stir and paved the way for our modern Unitarian Universalist tradition.  He rejected as transient many beliefs that orthodox Christians thought were permanent, or set in stone. No matter our time or place, we need to continually sift through our heritage and our hearts to find what is transient and what is permanent, what is worth our commitment, and where our commitments become barriers to spiritual growth.
