What Does the Bible Say About Democracy?
Sundays October 18 and November 1 at 2:30 pm
Can we find support in the Bible for the democratic form of government? Two sessions, first one on opposition to (or ignorance of) democracy in the Bible, the other on ideas in the Bible that support democracy (without mentioning it).
Rev. Dave Hunter, a member of MLUC and a semi-retired UU minister, is a graduate of Princeton University, the Harvard Law School, and Wesley Theological Seminary (where he was the co-recipient of the biblical interpretation prize in 2003). Dave and his wife, the Rev. Kerry Mueller (who were married here at MLUC in 1980), are the part-time ministers of the UU Fellowship of Pottstown.

The goal of the Main Line Unitarian Church faith development program is lifetime learning that enhances knowledge and creativity, informs values, and enables us to live lives of wholeness and hope.
Classes are offered in four general areas:
- Being a UU: includes UU history, heritage and identity and leadership development
- The Spiritual Self: includes spiritual practices, self-development, and life stages
- Religion: includes Jewish & Christian scriptures, world religions, and theology
- Seeking Justice: includes learning about social justice topics and how to do social justice work
Everyone brings their own personal, religious, and spiritual experiences to the process of faith development. Some of us are just getting started (in one area or another) while others are ready to learn more or go deeper. Classes are planned with an eye to offering opportunities to meet these stages of development (getting started, learning more, and going deeper) in each topic.
