September 24: ‘I’m Going to Live the Life I Sing About’ with Rev. Rob Gregson

We welcome the Rev. Rob Gregson, Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of New Jersey” to the pulpit on Sunday morning, September 24, at 10:30. His sermon topic is “I’m Going to Live the Life I Sing About.” Abby Kessler, Worship Associate, and Matt Anderson, Director of Music, assist.

Our historic Unitarian Universalist commitment to “living our beliefs” comes from many sources, including early thinking about the person of Jesus and “salvation by character.”  Rev. Gregson offers his thoughts about what Unitarian Universalism asks us not only to do, but to be, in our short time here together. The title of the sermon is taken from the gospel song by Thomas A. Dorsey and made famous by singer Mahalia Jackson.

Children and teachers join us for the beginning of the service then depart for Sunday School classes. Childcare for infants and toddlers provided from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Coffee and conversation follow the morning programs.

The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of New Jersey is a social justice and public policy ministry representing 21 Unitarian Universalist congregations across the Garden State.

From 2011 to 2015, Rev. Gregson co-founded and directed Simple Gifts: Unitarian Centre for Social Justice, an immigrant/elderly community center and social justice training program in East London, UK.  He has served congregations in rural Hunterdon County, N.J., and North London, UK.  Rev. Gregson currently resides in South Orange with his two children.
