The Future of Humanity

This is sermon 2 in Scott’s year-long series, “This I Believe.” Scott writes, “There was a time–earlier in my career, and at a calmer point in national and global events–when I was pretty upbeat about the long-term human prospects on this planet. But these days–what with so much environmental, political and social upheaval–I am somewhat less sanguine about our shared human future…a skepticism and anxiety I suspect many of you now share. Let’s reflect together on the future of our troubled species when we come back into the Sanctuary at 11:30 am for discussion.”
