A LGBTQ and even pagans inclusive fellowship in Anchorage that mixes parts of Christianity, Buddhism, Paganism & Eastern religions.
‘The Truth with a capitol T’ doesn’t exist, they say; though, there can’t be conflicting truths. There is only the way it really is — the truth.
For example, there either are angels or there are not. God is either one, three-in-1, or thousands (as in Hinduism). The Devil and demons either exist or do not. Demons either affect people, or do not. There is absolute truth, and truth matters.
“We’re more about asking questions than finding the answers.” – Rev. Sherry
Lise Adams Sherry, minister of Anchorage Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
Reverend Lise Adams Sherry was chosen to be the permanent minister of the Anchorage Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in March 2022. She grew up in a small town in Oregon as a regular church-goer thanks to her grandmother. As a teen, she questioned the central tenets of the Christian faith, and moved away from organized religion until stumbling into a Unitarian Church in Vancouver, Canada, thirty years ago. Today we discuss the Unitarian Universalist religion, Reverend Lise’s journey to the ministry, and how she steers a politically active congregation during polarized times.
