History of Universalism in the North Quabbin Region talk in Orange


Tuesday, June 12, 2018

ORANGE — On Wednesday, June 13 at 7 p.m. Rev. Don Erickson of the Community Church of North Orange and Tully will present “From Warwick to New Salem, A local Universalist History” today at 7 p.m. in the First Universalist Church on North Main Street. The presentation will be interactive and use multimedia components. The presentation is free and open to the public. 

Local historian Llyod Taylor calls the region “Universalist country.” The area, especially Warwick, represents one of the birthplaces of the Christian Universalist movement, dating back to the late 1700s. Christian Universalism once thrived in what is now the Greater Quabbin Region. A source of historic pride at the church dates to the year 1800, when the General Convention of the burgeoning Universalist movement was held “in-house” at the 1781 meetinghouse.
