Arthur Thexton, our “part-time, itinerant, circuit-riding, lay preacher in the UU tradition” will offer a sermon on “20th Century UU History” at the Blue Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Rice Lake, Sunday, January 28th., 10 a.m.

In his two previous sermons, Mr Thexton shared the historic roots of our denomination.  “It is clear our roots are firmly in Christianity and Protestantism, just as Christianity was initially firmly rooted in Judaism.  And just as Christianity eventually transcended its exclusively Jewish roots, so has UUism transcended its roots to become the 6-source religion it is today.”

Thexton attended Meadville/Lombard Theological School, received his M.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Chicago Divinity School in 1974, after graduating cum laude from Beloit College in 1972.  He went on to earn a J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1977. He served as Assistant District Attorney in Barron County during the mid-1980’s.
