A Radical Manifesto for the Twenty-First Century

Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons, Senior Minister
First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn

The Ten Commandments today are often coded as belonging to the religious right - the purview of politicians like Roy Moore who wield them as an emblem of "family values." But the Commandments themselves are woefully misunderstood and underestimated. This sermon will re-introduce the Ten Commandments as a set of bold, countercultural practices for our times, addressing economic inequality, ecological devastation, and the loneliness of modern life.
