The Rev. William Ellery Channing, Minister of the Federal Street Church of Boston, invited all Massachusetts ministers known to be liberal to meet in the vestry of his church (whose entrance was on Berry Street) on May 30, 1820. At the meeting Channing delivered a prepared address. He urged upon his colleagues a “bond of union” among liberal Christian ministers, within which they might meet to exchange practical ideas for strengthening their ministries. Thus the Ministerial Conference at Berry Street was born and continues to this day. This year’s Berry Street address, My Little Pony Was Right: Reflections of Fascisms Without and Within, was delivered by Reverend Cecilia Kingman.
