Stuck In the Middle with You

March 26, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

You know those people who just get under your skin? The ones whose opinions are wrong, whose laughs are annoying, whose outfits are….whatever. And you know how sometimes they sort of, kind of, maybe are just a little like you? None of us could be who we are without being all the versions of ourselves that we were before, but sometimes it’s tempting to pretend we don’t even know our past selves. Bring all that here and let’s find the sacred in it: see you on Sunday!

The Reverend Shari Halliday-Quan is the Senior Minister of First Unitarian Church of Rochester. They were loved into being by a large extended family in Los Angeles made up of white folks, Chinese immigrants who did not come here “the right way,” Latinx and multiracial cousins, civil servants, a stunt driver, workers in the gig economy before we called it that, and so many other multitudes. Shari has a BA in Economics from Fordham University and a Masters of Divinity at Union Theological Seminary, studying in both places the imperfect science and art of how to do a lot with a little. Prior to ministry in congregations, hospitals, and community settings in Rochester, San Francisco, and New York, Shari worked in recruitment and admissions.

Parking: Our church has no parking lot. Jewish Family Services lot: JFS welcomes us to use their parking lot on Sundays. It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets. After you park, get a token from an usher in order to exit the lot. We also rely on street parking in our neighborhood. Here is a map with details.
