History and the Measure of All Things
Rev. Dr. Todd Eklof
Services are held at 9:15 & 11:00 a.m. each Sunday. In our country, we often celebrate the moon landing, or even the first American in space, but before any of this, Russian astronaut, Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin became the first person in space. Gagarin is hardly a household name in the U.S., though, if we saw ourselves as human beings, rather than strictly as American human beings, perhaps we would be as grateful and aware of his place in our history as we are Neil Armstrong or Alan Shepard. This is just one example of how a humanistic ethic enriches our concept of history, and our connection to all people.
