Jamestown, N.Y. – The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (UUCJ) is looking forward to seminarian Verdis LeVar Robinson’s third virtual visit with their congregation on Sunday, May 15, 2022.
At the 10:30 a.m. hybrid service, Robinson will share a message titled “The Wrinkle in Our Time.” He says, “Instead of lying dormant waiting for time to pass, let us wake up to the idea of acknowledging it and embracing the possibilities of what is to come.”
Robinson is the Lenora Montgomery Scholar of Excellence at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, where he is in his final year as a Master of Divinity student. A former Holiness-Pentecostal minister, he is an Aspirant for the Unitarian Universalist ministry. He holds a BM in voice performance from Boston University, a BS cum laude and an MA in history from SUNY College at Brockport, and an MA in African American studies from SUNY University at Buffalo.
Robinson’s presentation relates most closely to the sixth of the seven Principles that Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote: The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
A social time follows the service.
While not required, vaccines, masks, and appropriate distancing are encouraged for those who participate in the service in person.
Participation can be either in person at 1255 Prendergast Avenue in Jamestown or online. To join virtually, use the link at UUJamestown.org/calendar.
