“The Contrary Way”

“So a Rabbi and a Unitarian Universalist Minister Walk into a Bar…”

Chancel Dialogue: Rabbi Michael Birnholz and Rev. Scott W. Alexander

For many years Temple Beth Shalom and UUFVB have had a special and congenial “sister congregation” relationship here in Vero Beach, starting when we were neighbors on 43rd Avenue. And for the last eleven years the congregation’s respective spiritual leaders — Rabbi Michael Birnholz and Rev. Scott W. Alexander – have enjoyed one another’s collegial company as they have worked together on many local interfaith projects.  As Rev. Alexander prepares to retire, they wanted to share a dialogue in this service…do be with us to hear their (theological/ethical/social) conversation.

“Stonewall” LGBTQ Sunday

Rev. Carole Yorke, Pulpit Guest

Rev. Carole Yorke, pulpit guest. She writes, “June 28, 1969: For the first time, after years of repression, harassment, and violence by the NYC Police Department, gay men, lesbians, and transgendered people fought back in response to a routine police raid on the gay bar called Stonewall. This event changed the course of history for the millions of gay men, lesbians, and trans people in the U.S., as well as worldwide. The UU Welcoming Congregation was born, and I shall discuss how strongly we have Sided with Love.”
