Dr. David Breeden, FUS Senior Minister, hosts a weekly TV program, FREETHINKING FORUM,

When did Minneapolis first hear addresses on Humanism? In 1916 when Rev. John Dietrich spoke to First Unitarian Soociety as its Minister. FUS continues through all the years since to be a national center for UU Humanism. Contact the Membership staff at 612-377-6608 and ask for Wendy.
