The 2013 Minns Lecture Series
March 8 & 9, 2013
Young for Liberty: The UU Movement in the 21st Century
In the spirit of William Ellery Channing, who once said, “I was always young for liberty,” the Minns Lectures for 2013 will be structured around three lively interactive presentations on how our free faith tradition speaks to, and in the past reached out to, young people – and how today’s revolution in social media can reshape, enlarge, and invigorate that outreach today.
Join us on March 8 and 9 in Boston, in person or online, for these three important lectures.

Rev. Naomi King
Rev. King ministers locally and at large with City of Refuge Ministries, utilizing social media to join global houses of study, prayer, and action, and to grow faith communities in and beyond congregational walls. Via a mix of spiritually minded blogs and faith development programs, her ministry reaches around the world, engaging multifaith partners as well as Unitarian Universalists.
A television producer and parish consultant, Mr. Bowden runs Leading Congregations, was the author of the popular site the UU Growth Blog (now part of this site), and curates the UU video channel, UnitarianUniversalism.TV. He is dedicated to helping religious leaders master changing culture and technology.
The Minns Lectureship Committee of King’s Chapel and First Church in Boston sponsors an annual series of lectures by UU ministers on religious topics of historical importance and contemporary relevance. Last year’s lectures by former UUA president the Rev. John Buehrens explored the renewal of Unitarian Universalism in the 21st century.
Video, audio, and texts for these lectures and for earlier ones, along with additional details on the 2013 lectures and how to register (at no cost), can be found on the Minns website.
