July 12: Rev. Catherine Torpey
- But Lot's Wife Looked Back: After an incident which bothers, or even traumatizes, us, we are often told to "get over it" or "move on." Often, however, we just can't let things go. This sermon explores that which will not let us go. Catherine was the Intern Minister at our congregation in 2002, and former Minister at UU Freeport, Long Island. Currently she is the Executive Director of the Focusing Institute and believes that all people everywhere can benefit from the insight, compassion and wisdom gained from honoring the felt sense.
