My family of origin is very small. Soon after I joined the UU Society of Amherst in 1993, it became the extended family I did not have. Like the members of any family, each of us is unique. But we share a thirst to connect with others, to be of service, and to better our world. The UU Society of Amherst is greater than the sum of its parts, and that gives it the power to do great things.
