Thanks, But No Thanks: Freedom and Discipline

This service will explore how freedom is not as much a right as it is a goal and a challenge. During this Thanksgiving holiday, perhaps it is appropriate not to be grateful for freedom but to be thankful for the opportunity to strive for freedom. As William Ellery Channing, one or our UU “saints,” put it 150 years ago, religion is one discipline for obtaining freedom, perhaps the most important.
