Reverend Andrew Weber will direct our attention to the Soul Matters theme for November, “Holding History,” with a service focused on ancestry. Family trees show us our ancestry and origins. Genograms are another tool that can help us dig deeper into our roots and see patterns in our family, specifically with regard to occupation, illness/health, and relationships. Genograms can reveal information that may help us better understand ourselves. If we get into them deeply, what we find can be surprising! Come explore how our present is informed by both our personal and our ancestors’ pasts.
Rev. Weber is a Unitarian Universalist minister currently living in Newark, Delaware with his wife and two children. He’s a pulpit supply minister at area congregations like ours (where he’s led worship twice before, most recently in January 2019), a part-time CrossFit Coach at the University of Delaware, and a full-time parent. He strives to promote a mindful and grounded life for himself, his family and the world, seeking to help people and communities live into their best selves. He reflects on living a faith-informed life on an online blog called “How to Drive Like a Minister,” https://drivelikeaminister.tumblr.com/.
