To Truly Love the Earth

The poet Denise Levertov writes, “But we have only begun to love the earth.” In this service, to honour Earth Day, Rev. Shawn Gauthier, of the Vancouver Unitarians, will invite us to reflect on what a deep and enduring love of the earth really requires of us.  

Rev. Shawn Gauthier is the newly settled minister of the Vancouver Unitarians. Before moving to Vancouver last summer with his husband Bob, he served for sixteen years as senior minister of the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto.

Originally from the U.S., Shawn began his undergraduate studies in the Conservatory of Music at Oberlin College, eventually completed a bachelor’s degree in religious studies at Harvard’s Extension School, and later received a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School. He completed additional graduate studies in ritual, worship, and preaching at the University of Toronto.

All services are currently both in person and via Zoom at 11:00 a.m. To join any of our upcoming services on Zoom, please click on this SERVICE LINK a few minutes before the service.
