Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
We often joke in congregational life that the first time we do something it's a novelty, the second time it's a coincidence, and the third time it's... a tradition!
This week, we delve into the traditions that are part of our life at First Unitarian. The best way, I believe, for us to do this is to hear directly from those who've lived through significant spans of our congregation's history. So, this week, we'll hear from eight people who, together, share over 500 years of First Unitarian history!
Margaret Bryant, who grew up at First in the 80s will offer the testimony, and then I will lead a discussion with a "Council of Elders," all long-time members, who will reflect on the ways the congregation has changed and the ways we've remained the same through the years. Our esteemed elders will be Jean Galt, Shirley Grant, John Lewis, Elisabeth Michnick, Anne Montagnes, Gwen Wulff, and Larry Wulff. I'm looking forward to this conversation and the knowledge they will impart.
See you on Sunday.
In faith and love,
