Proceedings of the Second Theological Symposium of the International Council of Unitarian and Universalists.
Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists from six continents gathered in Kolozavar 3-8 July 2006 to consider how our theology and and liturgy could respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by globalization and post-modernism. Pressing ethical issues of global justice, equity and environmental stewardship touch all of our lives. Unitarian / Universalist ideas about radical intellectual freedom and challenge to rigid orthodoxies pose uncomfortable questions about our own liberal religious assumptions and certainties, but we affirmed the unity of all existence ans commited to religious freedom, diversity, social justice and covenantal relationships. -- From the back cover.
