For a period of time after his death, our congregation was known as the Betts Memorial Universalist Church. He was a major civic leader in pursuit of social justice and earned his favorite accolade among many “Syracuse’s Most Useful Citizen” awarded to him by the congregation of the First Baptist Church. Come join us in celebrating one of our most famous roots! And yes, the Betts branch library was named after him.
Speaker: Dennis Killian Benigno
Jesus was born Jewish, was raised Jewish and died Jewish. We will celebrate that and understand how some declared that he was God. Here’s to our Unitarian roots!
How is social justice part of the covenant we make with each other as members of this community and as Unitarian Universalists?
We will explore service opportunities at First UU and how we might expand our commitment to making the world a better place.
