In this sermon, CB, who uses they/them pronouns, will share reflections on the framework of Preemptive Radical Inclusion (PRI) which is a way of being, of leading. PRI is a philosophy about creating just, loving, and creative spaces in the world.

CB grew up on a small farm in the Northern Adirondacks, went to a christian college in the suburbs of Philadelphia, and Union Theological Seminary in New York City. They currently live in what they call their “farmhouse library loft” in a repurposed factory building in Western Massachusetts. Prior to consulting full time, they were the Director of Religious Education at the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence for 16 years after holding education and training positions in adjacent fields and was the Unitarian Universalist Association’s 2019 Angus H. MacLean Award for Excellence in Religious Education.

CB was also with us May 21 for a well received service on Bearing Witness on May 23, email communications@usguu.org if you would like to view or re-view that service. For both services, CB joins us on Zoom, they will join us in person on September 30 for a full day workshop, more information and registration link HERE. CB is brought to you by Widening the Circle, Welcoming and Adult Spiritual Development.
