The Reb. Alison Wohler

I do enjoy bringing you the history of our holidays, and May Day is no exception.   Is it the day of Beltane, with its ancient springtime rituals, or is it now International Workers' Day?  Why do we always shy away from anything that reminds us of our human sexuality?  This should be a fun service

The Rev. Alison Wohler

In Unitarian Universalism, a free faith, we are open to the information of science and its discoveries.  Is it possible this latest discovery, of gravitational waves, will give us new information that will change our perception of our mysterious Universe?
