Free Life Began

July 18, 2021 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Join us for a visit from our sibling congregation in Rochester, New York! Their lead minister, Rev. Shari Halliday-Quan, will share their annual sermon on local hero, Frederick Douglass, whose escape from slavery has long been shrouded in mystery. The story is one of planning, luck, sacrifice, and boldness—pushing the borders of what’s possible and asking what are we to willing to do and for whom?

Rev. Shari Halliday-Quan (she/they) serves as Lead Minister of the First Unitarian Church of Rochester, NY. With a background in economic development and recruitment, Shari hopes that what you’re buying with your time and heart is your own best life. Shari and their wife Elisabeth live with their cat Hildegard and too many houseplants.
