A Statement: On the Future of This Church

by John Haynes Holmes

This is an important Unitarian milestone in which John Haynes Holmes, a pacifist Unitarian clergyman, first announced from the pulpit his intention to leave the Unitarian denomination. This action related in part to the American Unitarian Association's support for US involvement in World War I, and in part to his evolving vision of a single "Community Church" that he hoped would replace separate denominations in each geographic locality, with all working together for the common good of their community. Here he lays out his vision for the "Community Church" concept. Holmes was a co-founder of the NAACP and the ACLU, and a friend and early supporter of Gandhi.
