Unitarian Christian Alliance

78 EpisodesProduced by Mark Cain, UCA memberWebsite

The Trinity doctrine is perplexing. Many Christians prefer explicit Scriptures on the one God over catholic creeds. Mark Cain explores living as a lower-case-u unitarian amid a trinitarian majority with insights and stories from unorthodox guests.


35. The Spirit of Error

Two sides of a curious coin—right doctrine with wrong spirit, and wrong doctrine with right spirit. Can any sense be made of these possibilities?


Appreciation for guests, pronouncing "error," one error in three persons, and mystical grammar.


Reassurances about talking to Mark at the UCA conference, Dana from Pennsylvania comes up for air between episodes 26 and 27, and rub off some spirit kindness.

Do like Dana did—deposit your declaration during a disjunction of determined delight. Say your first name and your state or country.

"Hello, this is Ichabad from Crete. Can I get a stuffed UCA unicorn? The one with a curved blue horn?"


Pauses and pacing are hand crafted, artisan efforts. If your podcast app lets you remove silences, please don't. You will enjoy this better with the silences left in, and probably at the original speed. But who am I to spoil your fun?
