About The American Unitarian

David Burton

It is my hope that you enjoy this inaugural issue of The American Unitarian.  It is a modest beginning, but a needed step in the rebirth of the Unitarian tradition.

We plan for this journal to serve multiple purposes.  It will provide our readers with information and news about the activities and plans of the American Unitarian Conference.  We will also seek to provide food for thought and spiritual sustenance. 

I would like to think that in the fullness of time it will become an important forum for the rigorous discussion of  liberal religion in general and the Unitarian faith in particular and that it will help give rebirth to the intellectual strength that Unitarianism once possessed.

The journal will be dedicated to the discussion of religion.  Theology, philosophy, faith, ethics and Unitarian history will be a major part of this Journal.  We will also address pastoral issues and questions of polity and governance.  We will address practical questions such as outreach.  We will eschew political and public policy discussions.

The pages of this journal are open to clergy and lay persons. We very much need submissions from interested authors.

I look forward to working with many of you to bring the American Unitarian tradition to life in the pages of this journal.

May God's peace be with you.

Yours in faith, freedom, and reason,

David R. Burton
President, American Unitarian Conference
