Charles Gabriel was raised in the Catholic Church, wandered aimlessly through a 35-year period of atheism and finally developed a spiritual center to his life through the 12-step program influence of Nar-Anon and Al-Anon.

Charles joined USG in October 2004 and has held several volunteer positions including member of the elevator project committee, Budget & Finance Committee member, Buildings & Grounds committee co-chair, Strategic Planning Council chair and Board of Trustees member.

Currently Charles sings in the USG choir and is retired from church leadership. This is Charles’ ninth sermon at USG and he’s preached once at the UU Church of the Restoration.
