Guest Minister Rev. Heidi Swarts
Guest minister Reverend Heidi Swarts looks at “The Pitfalls of Perfectionism” during the 11 a.m. service on April 19.
Rev. Swarts states, “Sometimes it takes traveling abroad to see your own country and culture clearly – it helped me see the ways perfectionism has influenced American culture and our individual lives. My sermon will range from the early Christians to Alcoholics Anonymous, from Little Women to Botox. I’ll show how the drive to perfectionism has deep roots in New England Protestantism that just won’t quit—for better and for worse.”
Rev. Swarts holds a Ph.D. in political science and has a diverse background in activism and ministry. Her preaching topics combine the personal, political, emotional, spiritual and intellectual. She has taught political science at Syracuse University and Rutgers-Newark and has published the book “Organizing Urban America: Secular and Faith-Based Progressive Movements”
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal tradition in which congregants are encouraged to find the commonality and truth in many religious teachings while fostering strong roots in community and service.
