Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

Another weekend down on Long Island; this time it was for a very special reason: the Ordination of Laurie Stuart at the South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Freeport. I was part of the ceremony and the Upper Delaware UU Fellowship was there as well. It was very interesting. Being raised Catholic I had no idea what to do—do I cross myself when I walk past the alter, do I receive communion? So I just sat back and took it all in. I love the drums and the songs they sang, the love and friendliness that filled the church. A great time was had by all. Way to go Reverend Laurie Stuart!
