The Power of Play, Rev. Mara Dowdall

Plenty of research tells us that having time for play in our lives is not only a desirable, but actually an essential condition for human flourishing. Through this service, we’ll explore the important role play plays in our lives, how it contributes to our spiritualjourneys, and what gets in the way of embracing it.

Rev. Mara Dowdall grew up at USG, and she was honored to be ordained by the congregation in 2008. She is currently wrapping up her ministry in Montpelier, Vermont.  This summer, she’ll be moving to Burlington with her husband Ben and 15 month-old son Dean to begin a new position at the First UU Society, where she was called this spring.
