Wayside Quotations

Wayside classicQuotations from the Wayside

A Wayside Pulpit is a roadside sign with a welcoming or uplifting quotation.

When Henry Hallam Saunderson created the first Wayside Community Pulpit in North America in 1919, he thought to spread a little liberal thinking by publishing thought-provoking messages that reflect universal truths. These messages are the essence of Saunderson's legacy, a hope to find the divine in ourselves.

Wayside Pulpits have a long and interesting history in Unitarian Universalism.
