 Cover, January/February 2004 UU World: Seeing Jesus with Modern Eyes
opening words

So the Christianity of Jesus is permanent, though what passes for Christianity with popes and catechisms, with sects and churches, in the first century or in the nineteenth century, prove transient also....
Let the transient pass, fleet as it will.... God send us a real religious life....


From Parker's landmark sermon, "A Discourse on the Transient and Permanent in Christianity" (1841), one of the defining documents of nineteenth-century American Unitarianism. Quoted in Erik Walker Wikstrom’s cover story, "Jesus and the Modern Seeker," page 26.
