Unitarian Sunday Service Asks Followers the Big Questions

Do you believe in God? What is your answer when someone asks you that? Yes or no? The conversation about that question seems to suggest that we should put those who do believe on one side of the room and those who don’t on the other and let them argue, criticize, or feel superior. Is it really that simple? And what on earth does the question mean, anyway?

Which God are we talking about, and what does it mean to believe (or not) in that God? Would it not be better to reframe the question?

Rev. Dr. David Usher has had a truly international career as a Unitarian Universalist. A lifelong Unitarian, he hails from Adelaide, Australia. After four years as a jackaroo on sheep and cattle stations in the outback, he spent two years traveling solo around New Zealand, the Pacific islands, North America, and Great Britain. During that time, he decided he wanted to be a minister, eventually studying for the ministry at Manchester College, Oxford, where he gained a master’s degree in philosophy and theology.

He retired in June 2017 after a 36–year career that featured two ministries in England, one in New Hampshire—where he served for nine years and earned his doctorate from Andover Newton Theological School—then fourteen more years in England, and finally another three in California. He is the founding President of The International Council of Unitarians and Universalists and served on the national executive committee during his second stay in England. He is the author of two books, Twelve Steps to Spiritual Health and Life Spirit.

Rev. Usher has three adult daughters from his first marriage, and in August 2016 married the Rev. Vail Weller, who now works for the Unitarian Universalist Association. They currently live in San Mateo, California.

The UU Fellowship meets every Sunday at 10:30am at Posada de la Aldea, Ancha de San Antonio 15. It welcomes people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities. The meeting room is wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit
