Guest In Your Pulpit - Rev. Alison Wohler

Guest in Your Pulpit

Rev. Alison Wohler has recently retired from the UU Society of Amherst, MA, as their Minister Emerita and moved to Columbus, OH, to be near her daughter and parents. In her life she has been a working scientist, an art gallery owner, and a UU minister. Alison identifies as a Religious Naturalist and often brings science into her services. She would love to come fill in for you some Sunday!

Titles of programs/sermons and a brief statement of content on each:

In addition to any topic around which you might want me to create a service, here are some popular sermons I have given lately in several locations:

  • Radical Acceptance. A pastoral sermon.
  • A Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit. The title is from a book by Parker Palmer.
  • Come Take My Hand Friend. This is a good opening day sermon. Or near the beginning of the year.
  • Is Theology Important to a 21st Century Unitarian Universalist?
  • Our Congregational Roots. About our history, and our separation from the Congregationalists in the 1800s.
  • What's Up With Free Will? People find this one worthy of discussion. Determinism.
  • What I Learned in Science Class
  • Wendell Berry's Questionnaire - on the topic of divestment from fossil fuels
  • Living With Doubt and Uncertainty - quintessential UU identity
  • Living in a Frightening World
  • Freethinking Mystics With Hands - about the Tom Owen Towle book by the same name

I would be happy to help out with weddings and memorial services that may be more than your schedule can handle
