Many of the articles listed above are histories of individual Universalist churches on the Pacific Coast (the West Coast) of the United States. The 2 articles about universalism on the Pacific Coast plus the "What it Universalism" were used for a sermon given in 1995 at Throop Church in Pasadena by David S. Lawyer..
"What is Universalism" is intended to be a prelude to "West Coast Universalism". In contrast to most other writings about the Universalist Church, I've focused on the history of individual churches including their rise and fall (or decline). Due to be added is a long history of Universalism on the Pacific Coast prior to 1900.
