Included here is an article that was published by the UU Christian journal. The article is called, "THE RESTORATION OF OUR PAST: The Influence of Mysticism on Universalism." It describes a rather neglected early strand of Universalism, and grew out of a course I had with the late, great Dr. John Godbey at Meadville/Lombard.
Also included is a paper I wrote for the Ohio River Group. The Ohio River Group is a Unitarian Universalist ministers’ study group. The paper is from 2005 and is called "Prison Ministry -- Why Do It?" It is a response to a paper by the Rev. Catherine Torpey called “Theologies of Prison Ministry.”
