Recharging

Rev. Greg’s sermons uplift me, recharging the resources I spend each week working with academically underserved students--the poor, the undocumented, the people of color--at City College of San Francisco.  During his thoughtful and cohesive sermons, I discovered that I'm not just spending energy but reaping it in profound, unspeakable ways.  

For example, after a recent Sunday service where he challenged us to rethink the way we understand hell, I realized I had been to hell at least twice (and on its outskirts a few more times). And I know my heart is bigger for the human stories I've seen and witnessed.  And it's for those voices--that I'm certain often go unheard and unnoticed--that I raise my voice, quietly and calmly, again and again.  

I am so thankful to have had Greg as a mentor in the work that I am doing, and I will be so unbelievably heartbroken to see him leave.  But, like a good Unitarian, I will accept the sadness and keep on moving forward, breathing in peace and breathing out love.
