John Mallory Land on “social Darwinism”

John Land explores the pitfalls of applying Charles Darwin’s ideas to society.

John has been a member of our Fellowship since shortly after he moved to Columbus, in 2010, from Dallas, Texas, but his family roots run deep Columbus. He also serves on our Board of Trustees, and he’s our vice president for religious education. John earned a theater degree in directing and set design at Baylor University, and he worked for several theater companies in Texas. He founded Stage South Theatre Company in Columbus and currently works at the River Center in Columbus.

Our services typically included music, meditation and affirmations of the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism. Creeds are less important to us than treating each other and our planet with respect. Our members and friends come from many faith traditions and from some non-faith ethical traditions, such as atheism and agnosticism. We are committed to supporting each other in our own unique and responsible searches for truth and meaning. To that end, and to enjoy each other’s company, we have activities throughout the week. Visitors are always welcome at any of our events. Check our calendar.

Here’s a rundown of this Sunday’s activities.
