Who Does What?

by UUFH

When a newcomer or long-time member of UU enters our building, the experience of being in that beautiful space has a positive emotional and spiritual impact. I know, because it happened and continues to happen to me. I am thanking Bill Elder specifically in this article, though I know there are many others who took […]
