"Our Ten Syllables"
Rev. Dr. Justin Osterman
Worship Associate: Travis Ploeger
Appreciation for and connection with world religions has been a hallmark of our faith since the days of our Transcendentalist forebears 175 years ago. But one thing in particular distinguishes Unitarian Universalism from every other organized religion practiced in America today. This morning that distinguishing featured will be revealed.
The Rev. Dr. Osterman is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, a former US Army paratrooper, and a graduate of Meadville Lombard Theological School. He has served UU congregations in Indiana, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and is the only non-military clergyperson to meet and speak with prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
