Rev. Scott Alexander preaching. Scott writes, ” For some months now, a significant controversy has been raging within our liberal faith tradition.

However, there has emerged a deep divide about the crucial question of just HOW to best approach this ongoing social justice work. The minister’s association (the UUMA) has especially struggled with how to appropriately address these issues openly. I have been an outspoken “player” in this crisis/controversy, and want to share the outlines of this important struggle with you because I believe the very health and future of our liberal religious tradition hangs in the balance.
