The Gift of Limitations

Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto Sermons and Reflections
The Gift of Limitations

Our limitations don’t usually feel like a gift. But today we’ll hear some stories about surprising things that have happened in situations of difficult and unwanted constraints. Our guest preacher, Rev. Darcy Baxter, is in her seventh year of serving as the minister at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County, in the Central Valley. She is a third generation Unitarian Universalist, a reproductive justice activist, and a committed novice dancer. She also parents 3 year old Sammy, serves on the UUA Panel for Theological Education and serves on the Board of California’s Essential Access Health.
