May 4: Rev. Dr. Joshua Snyder. "Grace Within." The history of religion can be understood as a continuous argument about whether the Holy is located far away or very near.  As all classic disagreements are, this one cannot be definitively proven or resolved.  However, Unitarian Universalist theology has a unique perspective on transcendence and imminence that we have written into our Principles.
