Navigation Lessons: Reflections for Father’s Day

With Leo (12) becoming a bass, Chloe (18) about to head to college, a 25th wedding anniversary, and a 60th birthday, 2021 will go down as a year of transitions for our household.

Music will be by the choir of Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix and Alison Green of First U.

Keith Brown has been a member of First Unitarian since 2003. He has shown up less regularly since moving to Arizona in 2017, where he is on the faculty at Arizona State University and attends the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix. Keith, Shelley, Chloe, and Leo deeply value their Rhode Island roots and First U Providence ties.
