Bob Romer

Bob is an active participant in our UU Society. He notes slavery was widespread in the Connecticut Valley in Colonial Times, when most of the “important people” (including almost all the ministers) owned two or three black slaves.  Not all those who were enslaved accepted their condition.  Bob will discuss five of those who, in one way or another, resisted, including Jenny (born in Africa, who lived most of her life as the property of the Deerfield minister), and Amos Newport (also born in Africa who lived most of his life as the property of a Hatfield farmer).  Amos was the great-great-   ...  great-grandfather of a new friend of Bob’s, Alyssia Bailey of Atlanta, who attended a UU service this past February.

Terry Mollner

Terry is a recent friend of UUSA and has experience conducting experiential spiritual services. This service will bring the flavors of drumming, singing moving songs, heartfelt invocations, movement and sharing to discover the oneness of nature.  If you have a drum and want to participate, please come 15 minutes early.
