A recent transplant to Pioneer Valley and All Souls UU Church in Greenfield, I have fallen in love with the land and community. All Souls struggles to be a beacon for Kindness and Compassion in this troubled time. We are one of the poorest communities in Massachusettes and have learned how to minister to ourselves. We have a varied selection of thought provoking and varying speakers every Sunday.
Our current crisis, the church building closed to to asbestos contamination has wrecked havoc with our programs. As newly elected co-chair of the Board, I have worked with EPA, Remediation Company and Asbestos Consultant to move us toward re-opening the Church building.
