The gulf between us as citizens is deeper than it has been in our lifetimes. Some of us even fear Civil War. Rev Rohde herself is being “cancelled” on the ideological Left and dismissed as delusional by the ideological Right. As people of a Liberal Religious Tradition that is also under threat from many sides, how do we understand the others, talk to them? What could calm us? Rev. Kate Rohde began UU ministry in 1980 and has served congregations in Georgia, British Columbia, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, and Texas. She is minister emerita of the Unitarian Congregation of West Chester, PA. She retired from full time ministry in 2015.
