What's In a Name?

We begin September with a service of considering names, including that of our new Transitional Minister Sally Beth Stone Shore. Who is she, and why does she have such a long name? What should we call her? Why do we call ourselves Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County? And how does this naming business shape how we view the world and act in it? Today we explore how we might use names to make a better difference.

This month's theme: Life

Speaker: The Reverend Sally Beth Shore

The Rev. Sally Beth Shore was ordained in 2013. She has served 5 Unitarian Universalist congregations and the UU College of Social Justice in leadership positions, most recently as minister in Spartanburg, SC (2015-2017). In addition to being a minister, Rev. Shore facilitates Appreciative Inquiry, working with organizations to create positive futures. She and her husband ,Michael, live in Asheville and have 3 adult children. When she isn’t working, you just might find her riding her bike.

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
