January 3, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. – What Do I Say After I Say I’m a Unitarian Universalist?

Guest Preacher Rev. Dan Hotchkiss

Our congregation is alive with newcomers, each of whom has a unique story. Our long-time members have their stories, too. Joining this church family is one step in a lifelong journey. This Sunday, we ask what becoming Unitarian Universalist might mean, both in the moment when it happens and long afterward. What difference does it make–or should it make–to become part of this church and of the wider Unitarian Universalist community of faith? The Chalice Choir will be singing.

Rev. Dan Hotchkiss, our guest preacher, belongs to this church, where his wife Susan leads the music program. Dan’s 35-year ministry includes stints in UU churches in Florida and Connecticut, interim ministries in Massachusetts, and a tour of duty at the UUA in Boston. Today Dan writes and consults for leaders of churches and synagogues across a wide slice of North American religious life. The revised edition of Dan’s bestselling Alban book, Governance and Ministry, will be published in late January.

Rev. Sarah will return next Sunday, January 10.
