In 1819, First Independent Church of Baltimore ordained and installed its first minister. For the occasion, Rev. William Ellery Channing of Boston presented an address, “Unitarian Christianity,” now called the Baltimore Sermon, which became the most widely disseminated pamphlet in the United States before 1840. We gather on this historic occasion with those involved in the education of ministers to consider the future of liberal religion in our age.
What are the demands of the day for the training of religious leaders—both clergy and lay—to live a transformative faith in tumultuous times?
