Interviews

We would love to include the thoughts and experiences of our amazing people who call First Unitarian their spiritual home.

We are also looking for writers, videographers, podcasters and storytellers to help us build our library of feature stories. This is a great way to volunteer your talents.

Q: What are some of the reasons that you have become connected to First Unitarian Society of Denver?

Patrick C. - My goal as a Leadership Development Committee member is to assist in the process of identifying and encouraging new and ongoing leadership in our congregation. As background, I have been an active member of First Unitarian for over 20 years. I have served on a number of First Unitarian committees, been an RE teacher for many years when my sons were younger, and I am now completing my third year on the Board of Trustees.

In conversation over coffee after a pulpit announcement about sheltering women at the church, my fellow congregant dropped a side comment: “I lived in a shelter for a while. Years before, I was on a rafting trip when I fell out of the boat into Class 3 rapids. The two experiences were very similar. It was almost impossible to gain a foothold, to know which way was up. But fighting my way to safety in that life-threatening situation was a lot easier than fighting my way out of homelessness.”
