Sought and Found

I’ve been looking for a spiritual path and home and I believe I’ve found that in Unitarian Universalism. This podcast has done a wonderful job of introducing me to the journey of a Unitarian Universalist and if I’m ever in Austin I will definitely attempt to visit! I love the message and the way the messenger delivers it.

Wow. My favorite ...

I look forward to listening to these sermons each week. I live thousands of miles away and yet I feel as if I am a congregant in spirit. Great work!
