Sunday, September 4th    


Rev. Craig Schwalenberg 

Capitalism, Democracy, and Congregational Polity. Thomas Jefferson and Michael Moore. What do all of these things have in common? This Sunday of Labor Day weekend, let’s explore the answer, cooperatively. 

Rev. Craig Schwalenberg is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister raised in the Midwest, transplanted to New York (near the source of the Susquehanna.) After 15+ years serving as a parish minister and interim minister, he’s started a new community ministry as Your Game Minister— sharing the fun and wisdom where spirituality and play cross paths. His ministry is one of connections, storytelling, hospitality, and games.
