On Being a Beloved Child Rev. Aaron Payson
Lay Leader: Emily Quarles-Mowrer
As Christians celebrate the Baptism of Jesus on this day in the liturgical calendar, we pause to explore the meaning behind this event. What is
baptism and how do we honor it similarly in our own liberal tradition. What does it mean to be a claimed as a beloved child?
Rev. Aaron Payson is in his 21st year as minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Worcester, MA. Aaron lives with his wife Kristen in
Worcester. Their children, Morgaine (a senior at Boston University) and Charlie (a freshman at University of Massachusetts, Amherst) travel with
them this time of year to visit family in Temple, PA. Aaron is delighted to share a Sunday once again with the UU Fellowship of Pottstown!
