I first encountered Vincent Silliman in the archives of Meadville Lombard Theological School in 1990. I love music, hymnody, and liturgy. Discovering this minister had similar interests piqued my... More > curiosity. On sabbatical in 1998 I began a fifteen year journey to discover the real Vincent Silliman and his importance to the hymnody and liturgy of modern Unitarian Universalism. This book traces his life through his eight ministries until his death. It describes the projects that he was involved with such as three widely used Unitarian Universalist hymnals for children and adults, worship arts material, special ceremonies for honoring ministers at the Unitarian Universalist national assembly, and special worship services and wedding material for use by clergy. He reformed the national ministers association and helped create and lead the Religious Arts Guild which produced anthems, dramas, and other material. He accomplished all this without compensation for what was a labor of love for his adopted faith.< Less

Interviews in 2012 with more than 30 long-time "UUs" tell the story of how one small church in Yarmouth, Maine, adapted to changing times as a result of an historic 1961 nationwide merger of two faiths: Unitarianism and Universalism. A "non-creedal faith" with 7 principles resulted. That merger happened more than 50 years ago. What effect did it have on this small New England community? As subsequent decades unfolded--and the church nearly closed in 1979--how do current and long-time members tell the story? This book is an oral history, crafted completely of interview quotes. 100+ photos, most in full color; several historic b&w images.< Less
