Commitment and Risk

Rev. David Herndon

In recent weeks, church leaders have taken steps to ensure the safety and security of everyone who attends First Unitarian Church on Sunday mornings. These steps are a response to some troubling statements allegedly said by someone who first attended our church back in March. The sermon this morning will offer a larger theological context for how we can appropriately respond to risk.
