Life can be a confusing, daunting pain in the neck. Joy can do little to change our circumstances, but to choose joy creates transformation in the midst of the confusion and the pain. Our speaker will look at joy from a number of traditions and angles and hope that everyone enjoys what he has to say.
The Rev. Pat Jobe is the settled minister of the Greenville UU Fellowship in Greenville, S.C. He has been UU since 2003 when he left the United Methodist Ministry to operate his own business. He went broke in business for the third time in his life, but found lots of welcomes from UU congregations. He has spoken in Black Mountain, Asheville, Hendersonville and did the summer sermons for Spartanburg in '06, '07 and '08. He has also won writing awards from the N.C. Press Association and the N.C. Education Association for his writing about public schools. He has been an advocate for battered women and their children for 36 years and counts among his dearest friends, Dianne Shipp, who ran the shelter in Brevard many moons ago.
