A Man For His Times: A. Powell Davies
A. Powell Davies was the minister of All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, D.C. from 1943 to his death in 1957. He was very influential at the time with members of Congress often attending worship. Davies stood up to Eugene Mc Carthy and his witch hunt for communists and its blacklist. Davies had a national radio show which was very popular among the religious and the politically minded. Such a Unitarian ministry seems unimaginable, and I want to add to our concept of possibilities what contemporary Unitarian Universalist ministry can be. I think we will all be inspired.
