March 31 Service at 10:30 AM
Rev. Steve Edington
The sermon title is also the title of a recently published book by Rev. Steve Edington. It traces his religious and spiritual journey from an evangelical Baptist church in southern West Virginia to a forty-year career as a Unitarian Universalist minister; and offers some of the insights and conclusions he has come to along the way. His sermon explores how we cultivate a relationship with something we sense is greater than ourselves without getting too ensnared in religious language or terminology. It is part of our human condition to look beyond ourselves for some greater meaning or purpose in our lives. Our various religions have sought to deal with this need—and it is a need we all encounter, however “religious,” or not. we may consider ourselves to be.
Steve is the Minister Emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashua, New Hampshire, a congregation he served for twenty-four years. More recently he has been an interim minister for several New England UU congregations.
