by Rev. Roger Bertschausen and Rev. Christina Leone-Tracy
The UU hymn “Spirit of Life” reminds us to let our “roots hold us close and wings set us free.” We’ll be celebrating one of our Fellowship’s strongest roots–the Rev. Roger Bertschausen–at this celebration of his status as our emeritus minister and to honor his 26 years of service in ministry to our Fellowship. We will also be celebrating the Fellowship’s 64th birthday this month, the stories of our past, and the possible future stories that might yet be written as we let our “wings set us free.”
The reading is an excerpt from After Running Through the Thistles by the Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed, read by Rev. Leah Hart-Landsberg.
