What Would a UU Do?
Rev. Paul Boothby

What does Unitarian Universalism look like in public life? Though we try to interject civility and find common ground in all situations, what do we do if we feel angry, afraid or uncertain? How do we respond from the heart of our values with people who seem unreasonable? Rev. Paul Boothby is a fifth generation UU and identifies himself as a Religious Humanist. He has served First Unitarian Church of Lynchburg for ten years.

Two Community-wide Support Groups for Mental Health

On the 3rd Monday of every month, all in our community are welcome to participate in either of two support groups. The first group is for family and friends of those with a mental illness, and the other group is for those coping with a mental illness themselves. Both groups meet from 6-7:30 PM. Come share your experiences with others, learn coping skills, find out about local resources, receive support, and more.
