Got Sermon?

The lectionary study series “Got Sermon?” launched in 2008, and remains a visible expression of Union Theological Seminary’s service to the community. Taking place in the weeks before Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter, the series brings the talents of our faculty to our alumni/ae, students, and neighbors.

RSVP here!
