Come celebrate Day of the Dead by honoring deceased loved ones.  Throughout many parts of Latin America and the world this festive tradition brings music, food, dancing and joy.  We were touched by their lives and today is a happy reunion.  How do we honor those loved ones?  Perhaps by walking in their footsteps, but taking a different path?

A life-long Unitarian Universalist, Kent came to USG in 2002, bringing a vision for the church to “empower people as disciples of love.” Among his other responsibilities as lead minister he preaches 2 or 3 times per month. He also represents Unitarian Universalism in the community. Kent lives in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia with his wife Kristin and their two sons, Micah and Ellis. For more, see his bio on the Staff Page.
