How the Light Gets In . . . and Out

Leonard Cohen’s folk song “Anthem” reminds us that it is through our imperfections that the light gets in. Might that also be how our light gets out?

At today’s service, we visit Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church in Adelphi, MD.

The Rev. Diane Teichert served with Paint Branch, where she is Minister Emerita, and with three congregations in the Boston area. Before preparing for the ministry, she was a labor and community organizer. She is on the board of the UU Legislative Ministry of Maryland.
