My Journey to Christian Humanism
The first eleven years of my life were lived in a racially segregated but social class diverse community. Growing up in my family's protestant church, American Baptist to be exact, I learned the ethical values which are with me to this day. The people I learned to love in the world of my youth were by no means perfect role models. The phrase "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" had a profound meaning to me. I learned to love the 'beautifully flawed' human beings who populated my world. These experiences ultimately led me to humanism. I will discuss how all of this led me to Unitarian Universalism.
