Throwing on the Wheel, Rev. Kent Matthies

Creating art, including music, sculpture, painting, and drawing are wonderful ways to engage the soul.  Children and people of retirement age are the folks who more commonly engage in making art.  Were you ever fortunate enough to be in a pottery class where everyone had a chance to throw pottery on a wheel and then put their shaped clay into the kiln to dry?  What if we all committed to making beauty, in any form you can think of, on a regular basis?  Perhaps we would explore bigger ideas about the possibilities of our lives?  Perhaps, we would laugh and cry more, end wars and make more love!?

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. For more, see his bio on the Staff Page.
