What brought you to Unitarianism?
I think I always was a Unitarian. My parents were traditional Catholics who espoused education, wherever it would lead. There was always lively debate in our house, I was the oldest and I suppose I led the way in radical thought. I then drifted along for years living I by my own ‘light’ Then, many years ago I met some American Unitarians and they identified me as Unitarian. I eventually set out to find Irish Unitarians and here I am. Other people such as my Northern Presbyterian friends, [from adult local history courses I taught in Derry], they were an influence as well.
What was your first impression of the Dublin Unitarian Church?
I felt I belonged here.
What is your idea of the perfect sermon or address?
One that holds my attention whatever the topic. Remember I came from a tradition that did not espouse preaching as the centrepiece of the service.
Do you have a word for what is ultimate?
