This Sunday Aug. 19, 2018 - "Flashed Before My Eyes"; Rev. Kent Matthies
Whether a person thinks she has decades left to live or only a few short months we should all try to gratefully attempt to take advantage of the gift of Life. For many of us this becomes something along the lines of: Love life, love others and love yourself with all your might as if every day might be your last day. This is a great motto, but many times it is easier said than done. How do we keep it fresh?
A life-long Unitarian Universalist, Kent came to USG in 2002, bringing a vision for the church to “empower people as disciples of love.” Kent lives in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia with his wife Kristin and their two sons, Micah and Ellis. Among his hobbies Kent loves to play tennis, do yoga, read novels, dance and listen to jazz.
