August 12 - The Problem With Atonement - Rev. Tony Larsen
Many forms of Christianity today rely on an atonement theory that espouses the idea: "Christ died for our sins." Usually it takes the form of God the Father sacrificing his son to save humanity. Is there a better way to understand Jesus' life and death? Tony's sermon will argue that there is, and that it is present in our own Unitarian and Universalist history.
