Volunteers are vital to the work of First UU and many members find volunteering to be a meaningful way to be involved in church life. As part of an ongoing series, church member Elaine Twamley interviews a volunteer about their work. Their stories offer illustrate the many enjoyable and meaningful ways to volunteer.
"Life is a smorgasbord of choices," says church member James Crosley. "We can choose our path to goodness, who we are, and who we can become. And our faith can help guide us to that path."
A church member for nine years, James began his volunteer service by working on the rummage sale. He gradually added more duties and is now a lay minister. James regards his own life as a work in progress and is able to listen to others empathetically. He is also a CoChair of the Membership Committee— committed to membership growth so that others may benefit from First Church as he does.
