"Draw the Circle Wide, Draw it Wider Still"
Summer guest minister, Rev. Kevin Tarsa

Forty-two hours after he had been declared dead, our Universalist ancestor George de Benneville (1703-1793) awoke in his coffin. He returned to life with a renewed mission: to preach "the universal and everlasting gospel of boundless, universal love for the entire human race." On this day after de Benneville's birthday, let's consider stretching the edges of our own circle of care and concern.
