Let it be a Dance of Thanksgiving

Transformations 

Lay Leaders: Laurie Walton and Cam Leonard

The late Forrest Church, longtime pastor at the Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City, said “Whenever a trap door swings or the roof caves in, don’t ask “Why?” Why will get you nowhere. The only question worth asking is “Where do we go from here?” And part of the answer must be, “together.” Church believed in many things. One of them was that the term evangelical Unitarian is not an oxymoron. Church described himself as a born-again Unitarian: “Born again” to the trembling beat at the world’s very heart”  — open to both the laughter and pain of life. He believed that those who dare to be thankful in the face of all that life throws at us might even express our gratitude by sharing it with our friends. Join us on Sunday, November 17 to hear more of Forrest Church’s gospel of life and love.
