“When you knew, Grampa, what did you do?”        Allen Armstrong

There is a simple, sufficient reason to do what one can toward reducing the harm that climate change will cause whether or not we avoid the catastrophe.  This is my reason: When my grandchildren ask what I did when I became aware that their future was in jeopardy, I want to have an answer.  When I see the climate refugees fleeing flooded coastal areas, I want to know that I did what I could.

Reverend Thomas Barnes was called Father Barnes because he was considered to be the “father” of Universalism in Maine. He was also the first minister of the First Universalist Church of Norway. Join us as we celebrate the remarkable life of Reverend Thomas Barnes.
