Gratitude for Health and Happiness
Rev. Michael Brown
Research on gratitude continues to support its value for increasing health and happiness. Why should that be? And if it is true, how can we use this knowledge in practical ways to improve our lives? What are you grateful for?

Old Time Universalism
Rev. Michael Brown
What did the old time Universalist believe? UU historian Ron Cordes says that Universalism reached its peak in numbers just before the Civil War. Let's look at these old arguments and ponder the significance of Universalism in 2015. I think Universalism is one of the great myths of inclusiveness.
