Virginia and Kevin were in Harrisburg for the annual UU district conference April 8-10. While there, we attended Sunday service at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg (that’s lead minister Rev. Howard Dana and associate minister Rev. Suzanne Marsh with Virginia before service).The Harrisburg church is noteworthy because it has flourished over the past decade, and three years ago expanded its footprint beyond its suburban base by purchasing a second church in the city itself–and getting all the joys and issues that come with being a part of neighborhood as part of the deal. Which is what they wanted. Anyway, Rev. Dana was inspirational and Virginia and I were energized by a Saturday discussion of how to make liberal religion relevant in the 21st century. Fascinating, challenging stuff.
