Women’s Prophetic Voices
Alexa Fraser Ministerial Intern
Universalist Jane Leade (1624-1704) published 7 books on her Universalist theology – and few UUs have ever heard of her or her prophetic message. What did she say, what did it take to say it, and why do we give a hoot? This sermon will touch on Jane and explore her relevance to our lives today.

My spouse and I were looking for a spiritual home where our children could grow and learn. River Road is a family-friendly congregation offering quality religious education for children of all ages, including a popular and active teen group. On Sunday morning, you’ll find inspiring and thought-provoking sermons, superb music and friendly people. Every day of the week, this building is full of caring folks working together to effect positive change in our community. I have been cherished and challenged and supported by this community.
