1. The Winchester Profession

The 1803 Winchester Profession of Faith has had a profound effect on Universalism, Unitarian Universalism and other liberal denominations for the last 200+ years. This is its story.

2. Olympia Brown
(A Portrayal by The Reverend Doctor Janet H. Bowering)

Olympia Brown (1835-1926) dedicated her life to opening doors for women. Among only a handful of women to graduate from college, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Antioch in 1860 and three years later became the first woman graduate of a regularly established theological school at St. Lawrence University. She was ordained a Universalist minister, the first woman to acheive full ministerial standing recognized by a denomination. As a young minister, she took an active role in the women's suffrage movement and was one of the few original suffragists who lived to vote in the 1920 presidential election.
