“God is Not God’s Name”

Rev. Steve Edington and Worship Associate Katie Hamilton

The sermon title is also the title of a recently published book by Rev. Steve Edington. It traces his religious and spiritual journey (or migration) from an evangelical Baptist church to a forty-year career as a UU minister. This morning we’ll explore how we cultivate a relationship with that which we sense is greater than ourselves without getting too ensnared in religious language. It’s part of our human condition to look beyond ourselves for greater meaning or purpose in our lives. Religions have sought to deal with this condition – a condition we all encounter however “religious” or not we may consider ourselves to be. Rev. Edington is the Minister Emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua, New Hampshire.
