"Finding a Heart at Peace"
What is a heart at peace? And how do we achieve it? My life was filled with many riches, but I was a self-righteous cynic at war with the rest of the world until I stumbled into that unexpected path that I never guessed would lead to peace, a path of bigger commitments. I had always thought peace meant avoiding big commitments, and I never realized how much this avoidance had contributed to my dissatisfaction and to having a heart at war. I share my story in the hope that it will help others find unexpected peace in their lives.

After 21 years of service, our congregation said goodbye to Rev. Gary James on June 30, 2013. During the 2013-2014 church year, we welcome several visiting UU ministers, on regular rotating basis who will offer us a variety of perspectives. We will have an interim minister for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 years and a settled minister beginning August 2016. The search process for the settled minister will begin approximately January, 2015.
