Jamestown, N.Y. – Angus Watkins is returning to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (UUCJ) to deliver the message at the 10:30 a.m. hybrid service on September 18, 2022.
Watkins will be in person to address the congregation on “Coming Back: Resetting Our Course.”
Of his sermon, the retired Presbyterian minister says, “After recent years of personal, social, institutional, national tumult, health crises and other upheaval, this is an important moment to regain our footing and re-set our course, proceeding with shared resolve and connectedness.”
His sermon most closely relates to the third of the seven Principles that Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.
A graduate of Ohio’s Bowling Green State University with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts, Watkins received his master’s of divinity degree from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. He lived outside Ashville, N.Y., in North Harmony Township for over 25 years with his wife, Anne, a member of the UUCJ. They recently moved back to their native Buffalo area. Both will be at the service.
A potluck luncheon follows.
Participation can be either in person at 1255 Prendergast Avenue in Jamestown or online. To join virtually, use the link at UUJamestown.org/calendar.
