    Organizer of William F. Schulz: Do Robots Have Rights? How About Rocks?

    The Minns Lectures Committee of First Church Boston and King’s Chapel sponsors an annual series of lectures by UU ministers on religious topics of historical importance and contemporary relevance. For its spring 2019 series, the Minns Lectures Committee hosted Rev. Dr. Colin Bossen, who challenged us to ask how Unitarian Universalists can respond to populism and white supremacy in the age of Trump. Video  for these lectures and for earlier ones, along with additional details on the lectures, can be found at www.MinnsLectures.org. The committee welcomes innovative proposals for lectures in 2021 and beyond. Guidelines on proposal submissions and a short history of this unique lecture series are also posted on the website.
