Clara Barton was a Universalist known as the founder of the American Red Cross. Her life exemplifies courage and strength in an age when women were considered fragile and unfit for being out in the world much less for leadership.
We’ll reflect on Barton’s life and legacy this Sunday, October 6, in a service to be presented by the Reverend Frieda Gillespie titled “I’m Strong and I’m Not Afraid: The Life of Clara Barton.”
The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes for children and youth are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
