A relationship with God
Carolyn Benton will present “God Went to Beauty School” at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, service at First Unitarian Universalist Church of West Volusia in DeLand. The sermon was given at the Chautauqua UU Society by Lisa Ward in the summer of 2013.
This sermon addresses our relationship with God. We all have our own concept of who God is or isn’t. Perhaps this sermon will help you decide if you can make peace with your God — or not.
