The overall health of America is in all of our minds and hearts right now. This sermon will share a positive affirmation of the cornerstones of democracy and the ideals that signify the American way of life. Three qualities will be thoroughly addressed: religious freedom, patriotic diversity, and compassionate service. We’ll also learn why Unitarian Universalism has often been considered by sociologists to be “America’s real religion.”

Rev. Carolyn Sheets Owen-Towle graduated from Scripps College with a BA in Art History. She has served as co-minister with her life partner Tom at the First UU Church of San Diego for 24 years. She also served as the first woman President of the UU Minister’s Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and ran for UUA President in 1993. She is the author of  Damngorgeous: A Daughter’s Memoir of Millard Owen Sheets and is currently an active member of three art boards in Southern California.

Rev. Tom Owen-Towle has been a parish minister since 1967 and is the author of two dozen books on personal relationships and spiritual growth. He is a guitarist and budding magician who currently sings with seniors, mentors at-risk children, and volunteers with San Diego’s homeless. The Owen-Towles are the parents of four children and grandparents of seven.

The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at La Posada de Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15, and welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The room is wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit our website at uufsma.org.
