Confinement during the pandemic has offered time for our minds to wander among memories great and not so great, some to keep and others to be rid of. In that vein of musing, the Reverend Ned Wight returns to the UUFSMA online pulpit during this Sunday’s service to sort through a garage sale of mental merchandise he believes others can put to good use. Offering a wide range of items upon which to meditate, his sermon will be tagged with seriousness and whimsy as he presents the assortment of thoughts occupying his mind during the pandemic, including sin, truth-telling, love, virtual community, racial equity, the purpose in living, and awareness of God.
Reverend Wight retired in August 2019 as interim Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock, Manhasset, New York. Prior to that, he served for a decade as Executive Director of that congregation’s UU Veatch Program, which makes grants to social change organizations in the United States. He also served UU congregations in California and Massachusetts. He holds degrees from Harvard Divinity School, Boston University, and Stanford University. Today he chairs the board of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, which partners with grassroots organizations that champion human rights in the United States and abroad. He returns to San Miguel on line following his first visit in person in February 2020.
