James Luther Adams’s Five Smooth Stones of Religious Liberalism

Adams, an influential liberal UU theologian, developed the idea that religious belief was not simply a personal attitude or guide for behavior. Theologians have since distilled Adams’s studious call for action into what we call the Five Smooth Stones. Congregations use the stone concepts in sermons, lifespan education and in talking about their faith in action work.

Betsey Johnson is the lay leader.
