Until further notice, we have returned to Zoom only.
Presented by Rev. Michael J. S. Carter
We will listen to a recording of Rev. Michael J S Carter, UUCSV minister, in his recent talk about leaders of their time.
What would Martin Luther King say today? We will follow his presentation with discussion on topics about institutional oppression, racism, poverty, the war economy and the distorted moral narrative that blames the people who are suffering for the problems we have.
Rev. Carter extols us to be the best we can be. Trying to do what is right. Be the change you want to see in the world. Speak the truth.

Rev. Michael J. S. Carter was steeped in the African American Baptist Church tradition growing up in Baltimore, MD. His curiosity for other forms of worship lead him to attended synagogues, Catholic churches, various Protestant denominations, Mosques, Religious Science and New Thought Churches, Native American Sweat Lodges and Pow Wows, as well as Buddhist and Hindu Temples. He departed from his traditional Christian upbringing for theological reasons after moving to New York City to pursue a career in the professional theater, which he did for 20 years.
Wanting more in his life, he decided to leave the theater and attend The New Seminary Interfaith Temple in New York which trained and ordained Interfaith clergy. He was ordained in 1994 and attended Union Theological Seminary from 1997 until 2000 where he received a Masters In Divinity Degree. He is proud to serve as the minister for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Swannanoa Valley.
