Rev. Sally Beth Shore to speak at Tryon Youth Center

Published 4:33 pm Wednesday, March 19, 2014

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176 N at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 23. Reverend Sally Beth Shore will speak on the topic “A Beacon on a Hill.”

According to “A Beacon on a Hill,” Unitarian Universalism was born out of the New England Congregational church, which, when the Massachusetts Bay Colony was formed, saw itself as being a “pure church”, an example for others to look to and be inspired by. A lot has changed in the almost 400 years since then. Yet, we still see our faith as a beacon for faith, hope, and justice in the world. Or do we? As Unitarian Universalists, we tend to be particularly sensitive to the need for religious tolerance and we value pluralism (the theory that there is more than one basic principle or way of looking at things.)  But what does it mean to be connected to one church or one spiritual path in such a world?

Come early for fellowship and refreshments. For information, go to the new website at or call 828-894 5776.
