A fun midcentury Universalist Church pamphlet

This is a follow up to my blog post about a mid-century Universalist Church logo. I’m guessing it’s from the 1950s, but I don’t have any details about it. Got it years ago, and realized that it would be unfamiliar to many of my readers.

One thought on “A fun midcentury Universalist Church pamphlet”

  1. I had never before seen the Kingdom of God rephrased as the “Kingdom of the Good Life”. Not a phrasing I could particularly agree with it (feels like a commercial for a Disney resort). But a very interesting snapshot of a specific community, in a specific place and time. I also find it interesting that a more Humanistic Universalism has its focus on a “Universal Human Brotherhood”. This last piece, is an idea that possibly deserves to be re-examined and re-used in our context of globalization and human civilization.
