“The Legacy of Michael Servetus”

This Sunday, Rev. Dan will be looking at where we came from as a denomination by exploring the life of Michael Servetus. Servetus was burned at the stake after being branded a heretic by John Calvin. His death served as a catalyst for a call for religious tolerance in Eastern Europe, which eventually spread throughout Western Europe and the New World. Many Unitarian Universalists today consider Servetus to be one of our denomination’s proto-founding fathers. He is part of our Unitarian heritage and tradition. What can we learn from Servetus’ tragic death that will help us move forward into a better future?
