A centered, thoughtful person, Natalie is an engaging preacher and worship leader who brings passion to lifespan religious education and faith development. In her own words, “religious education is central to Unitarian Universalism…a process of giving an outline for living. Religious education encompasses all aspects of learning and growing.”

Rev. Dr. Fenimore’s sermon will focus on the following:
