Legacy of Love

Unitarian theologian James Luther Adams wrote about the power of covenant to resist oppression and injustice. Covenant is the basic building block from which we grow our UU church. As we continue to move out of Covid, the need for civil society is more important than ever to promote democracy and support each other. What lessons do we glean from Adams’ work and how are they relevant to today?

Rev. Alex Haider-Winnett is a UU minister and chaplain based in Davis, CA. He lives with his wife Rev. Christine Haider-Winnett, their son and two cats. They are also expecting a baby in January 2023. He holds a BA in Peace Studies from Earlham College and an MDiv from Pacific School of Religion. In his free time, he likes watching movies, working in his garden and eating burritos. In 2018, he won a second place ribbon at the California State Fair for pickles. He is currently working on a theology of mycology and fermentation.
