October 7: “How the Hell got into Religion”

This sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 8, 2018, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson. In this lively presentation (video) Bishop Pearson gives some insight and background to how some figurative references to a valley in Jerusalem (“Gehenna,” meaning “Valley of Hinom”) found in rabbinic literature, as well as Christian and Islamic scripture, evolved over 2000 years of Christian thought to become the very different concept of “Hell” eagerly embraced and promoted by evangelicals today.
