September 30 is celebrated as John Murray Day, because on that Sunday in 1770, this former minister was stranded on a New Jersey Shore and is credited with giving the first Universalist sermon in the U.S.   What did early Unitarians and Universalists dream for their future?  What were their hopes in uniting in 1961?  What are our expectations for ourselves as UUs and how can we fit this 21st Century?
