The Rev. Tom Rosiello will be back from his sabbatical and leading Worship with special guest Preacher, Christian Schmitt, Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, California.
Rev. Christian Schmidt
Unitarian Universalists sometimes shy away from language like “blessing,” but should we? We’ll talk about what it means to give a blessing, to receive one, and just what we’re talking about here. You are invited, though certainly not required, to bring a small object — or photo — that’s important to you to be blessed during the service, after which you’ll have it so that you may always have a blessing with you!
The Rev. Christian Schmidt serves as senior co-minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, Calif., and previously served churches in Massachusetts and New Jersey, including in Malden where Ilene Gillispie was his field education student. He and his wife, the Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt, have two sons, CJ and John.
Regular religious eduction classes will take place at 9 AM and child care will be provided for the
9 AM service and the Ordination Service at 2 PM.
