UU Chalice by Inga Johannesen, UU Church of Chattanooga, TNThis episode I visit with my own minister, the Rev. Steve Edington of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua, New Hampshire.

As a youth in West Virginia, Steve decided to become a minister just like the one at the Baptist church his family attended. That began his journey through the ministry, first from conservative to liberal Christianity, then to Unitarian Universalism.

In addition to his journey, Steve discusses his own theology, which he tags as panentheism. We also touch UU theology — perhaps an oxymoron — which leads to two of the most prominent UU theologians of the past 70 years, James Luther Adams and Forrest Church.

This episode runs about 43 minutes. You may listen with the above audio player, download the mp3 file, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

Our theme music is Floating Souls, composed and performed by Ambrish and made available royalty-free thanks to Music Alley from Mevio. The chalice artwork was created by Inga Johannesen, of the UU Church of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
