Becoming Ourselves

One man's journey from the Southern Baptist Church to self-realization and happiness.

This month's theme: Taboos

Speaker: James Mack

James Mack was born in Memphis, Tennessee and raised Southern Baptist. In high school, he was president of the Bible Club. He went to a Southern Baptist University to become a preacher, but when he came out in his early 20’s he moved to New York City and began a career in men's fashion. Several years later, he moved to Cape Cod, opened a bed and breakfast, and discovered Unitarian Universalism. He met his future husband Jon Arterton in the UU choir there, and the two have been singing together ever since. For a decade he served as a chaplain with the UU Meeting House of Provincetown, performing weddings and commitment ceremonies. He and his husband now divide their time between St. Petersburg, Florida, and Brevard.

The first guiding Principle of Unitarian Universalism is the inherent worth and dignity of every person. UUTC welcomes all—persons of various ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, theological and political beliefs, socio-economic status, educational backgrounds, abilities and ethnicities. Services are at 9:15 and 11:00am. The building is wheelchair accessible, dress may be casual and visitors of all ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, and beliefs are warmly welcomed.

Infant care is available during both services.

Join us for coffee between services at 10:30am
