I Was a Stranger and You Invited Me In
Rev. Doug McCusker
Worship Associate: Elizabeth Cameron

Modern genetic tracing of human DNA has revealed patterns of migration out of Africa across the entire land mass for millennia. The human story is one of migration and the mixing of people.  Every time that happened a choice was made to treat the boundaries between people as a wall or a bridge. This is still going on and whether we are the migrant or the resident, the choice of how we will respond lies deep within our heart.

It is with heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Dr. William Pinschmidt, who died on Oct 7. Bill was the last living founder of UUFF who signed the papers establishing our membership in the American Unitarian Association in 1956, and he was a founder of the UUFF Music Program. Throughout his 62 years as a member, he was beloved by everyone who knew him. He was an amazing storyteller, a punster of renown and a walking encyclopedia of history. He graced our Fellowship with his dedicated leadership, countless volunteer hours, myriad talents, and generous financial stewardship. We will miss him and grieve his death.  And yet, he left us so many memories that his presence will endure in our hearts. He is survived by many family members including his wife, Gae and his daughters Carol, Mary Lynn, and Deedee.
