Jamestown, N.Y. – Rev. Alison Wohler will speak at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown’s 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday, October 24, 2021.
Her sermon topic is “Are we there yet? Is the end in sight?”
Of her subject, Wohler says, “Please, please, let it be time for the Pandemic Rollercoaster ride to end. I'm ready to get off. The ups and downs of reality can be so exhausting.”
In 2016, Wohler retired as Minister Emerita from the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst, Mass., and moved to Columbus, Ohio, to be near her daughter and parents. She is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Chautauqua, where she is a summer resident as well as a lifelong, fifth-generation Chautauquan.
Before becoming a Unitarian minister, Wohler was a working scientist and spent 19 years as an art gallery owner.
Wohler’s background includes a BS in Biology from Allegheny College. Her scientific background has been a significant influence not only on her theology, but also on her philosophy of ministry, and what it means to be in religious community. She identifies as a Religious Naturalist and often brings science into her services.
