Medicine For Our Time: Living the Legacy of Howard Thurman

By Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy, Springfield Meetinghouse


As we look around, we see fear, anger, fighting, factionalism even despair.  Where can we turn for help?  The life and teachings of Howard Thurman are the perfect medicine for these times.  Who was he?  Howard Thurman (1899-1981) rises as one of the most influential African Americans of the last century.  He was called, "the saint of the Civil Rights Movement," by Rep. John Lewis.  Thurman was a universalist, mystic, one of the greatest preachers of his day, a scholar and a professor at Howard University and Boston University. He served as co-pastor of the Church for the Fellowship of All People in San Francisco.  He had a profound impact on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He found a way to face directly and open-heartedly the challenges of his time and offers us an invitation to walk in his footstep to cultivate connection, courage and hope. 

You're invited to join us on this eight-month journey of transformation as we learn from and let Thurman's insights, challenges and paradoxes wash over us with hope. On the third Sundays from October through May, we will co-host a series of powerful interfaith worship services based on Thurman’s life and teachings.  This series is co-sponsored by the Empowerment Center in the Cheverly, MD in D.C. area, and the Springfield UU Meetinghouse. We will welcome to the service, participants from the Meetinghouse, the Empowerment Center and other individuals and congregations who are also interested in learning about Thurman and his legacy.  Read more.

Spiritual Makerspace

This initiative, begun in August of 2020, convenes local community members whose passions or vocations align with the Meetinghouse’s mission to nurture the spirit and heal the world. Its goal is to build a network of community leaders who share practical and creative skills that strengthen community resilience. We generally offer a Spiritual Makerspace service once a month.
