Carlton Pearson was a famous Christian preacher, but he lost it all when God opened his heart to Universalism, the gospel of inclusion. Since then, Pearson has rebuilt his community on the basis of love, rather than fear, and this weekend he is the featured speaker at the 2009 Unitarian-Universalist Christian Fellowship Revival celebration in Tulsa (here’s an early report on the festivities). If you can’t be there in person, you may at least enjoy viewing Pearson’s appearance on Dateline from 2006, now available online. You can watch both parts of the story (part 1, part 2) and read a transcript at the Dateline site. At a little under 20 minutes in length, it could be a good launching pad for group discussions at UU congregations.
