SUNDAY, JUNE 10
Farewell to Emily Pinkerton. Rev. David Herndon, Senior Minister. “Rapping Dr. Seuss.”
Emily Pinkerton has accepted a position as Professor of Music Industry at the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York, where she will teach (among other things) songwriting and composition. This will be Emily’s last Sunday at our church, where she served as the conductor of our Folk Orchestra from 2006 to 2014 and as our Director of Music since 2015. Emily’s departure is a huge loss for our congregation. Nevertheless, let’s make this mostly music Sunday a festive farewell!
SUNDAY, JUNE 17.
Fathers’ Sunday. Stephanie Pawlowski. “Showing Mercy When it’s Us vs. Them.”
We welcome to our pulpit this morning Stephanie Pawlowski, Commissioned Lay Minister Candidate here at First Unitarian Church. Our first principle is the inherent worth and dignity of every person. This can be a hard principle to remember when faced with people who spew hatred and vitriol. In our current political climate, where things seem more divided than ever how can we show mercy and compassion towards people who believe the opposite of everything we do?
SUNDAY, JUNE 24.
Dave Hereth. We welcome to our pulpit this morning Dave Hereth, a participant in the Shared Pulpit class and a long-time member of First Unitarian Church.
