Introduction, Session 14: Our Heritage's Calling

In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. — Margaret Fuller, 19th-century Unitarian theologian

In this session, we turn to the phrase in the Blake covenant which encourages us to "help one another." Through the story of 19th-century Unitarian Elizabeth Blackwell, who became a physician in order to help others heal, we discover our faith heritage of perseverance, hope, and giving. Blackwell became the first woman doctor in the United States—one of the pioneering Unitarians and Universalists who heeded a calling to help others despite societal obstacles and personal hardships.
