CHURCH SPOTLIGHT: Grand River Unitarian Congregation - Rev. Jessica P. Rodela

Today I had the privilege of sitting down with Reverend Jessica P. Rodela of Grand River Unitarian Congregation (formerly First Unitarian Congregation of Waterloo). We discussed a variety of topics such as:

  • What is Unitarianism?
  • How far back does Unitarianism go?
  • What do Unitarians believe?
  • Where does social justice fit into the Unitarian picture?
  • Where do Unitarians stand on LGBTQ issues
  • And much more!
My thanks to Jessica for taking the time to sit down for this interview, and to videographer Wes Austin. Below this video is a sermon on anti-LGBTQ bullying by Rev. Jessica, as well as pictures of the church.
