Join the Rev. Tom Owen-Towle on Sunday, April 29th for his sermon “Theology Ablaze.” In the past 50 years, Unitarian Universalism has awakened spiritually and grown unashamedly theological. What does our liberating, life-affirming, loving faith have to offer today’s world?
The Rev. Dr. Tom Owen-Towle has just completed 44 years of settled ministry and is now giving sermons and conducting workshops across our District offering a seasoned perspective on the topics of progressive religion, partnership, gender justice, parenting, and citizenship in the global family. He has written two dozen books, the latest being Theology Ablaze which will be theme of the service on April 29th at OCUUC. Tom and his life-partner Carolyn Sheets Owen-Towle are ministers emeritii of First UU Church of San Diego and the active parents of 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Tom is a guitar player, budding magician, and community volunteer. His books will be available for purchase between services and after second service.
