In the Service:
Sunday, June 24, “A Moral Voice at the Table – Preachers and Politicians – Albany 2018,” Rev. Dick Gilbert
House Speaker Paul Ryan recently fired the House Chaplain with the words “Padre, you just got to stay out of politics.” The guilty preacher had prayed for fairness in the tax overhaul bill, bringing a moral voice to Washington. How compelling was the voice of the religious community during the 2018 legislative session in Albany? Should we be fired? And how did the legislators do, morally speaking?
Dick Gilbert has been a Unitarian Universalist minister since 1961, retiring in 2005. He has published books on faith development, social justice and meditations, including In the Holy Quiet and Thanks Be for These. Dick has served congregations in Cleveland, Ithaca, Golden, CO and Rochester, NY. He lives with his wife Joyce in Rochester where they enjoy time with their three grandchildren.
Music: Rick Porterfield, piano with Elaine “Faerie” Silver, guitar and voice
