Sermon with Rev. Paul Sprecher, our ministerial candidate

This Sunday 4/27, our guest minister is Rev. Paul Sprecher, our ministerial candidate. The topic will be “The Love of Money” - Someone said that "the love of money is the root of all evil;" but the love of money is what appears to be driving the world economy.  It seems that none of us can get enough!

Come hear Rev. Paul and stay for the Open Forum w/ Rev. Paul and a pot luck lunch.

Rev. Paul Sprecher served minister of Second Parish in Hingham Unitarian Universalist from 2006 until 2013.  Prior to being settled at Second Parish, Paul served a combined Ministerial Internship at Arlington Street Church and the Church of the Larger Fellowship as part of his preparation for his third career.  He taught seventh and eighth grade English and US History for ten years at the Collegiate School for Boys in New York City, then started a new career as a computer consultant and then as Vice President for Technology at the American Stock Exchange; he retired from that position in 2005 to finish his preparation for ministry.

Rev. Paul is the treasurer of the Unitarian Universalist History and Heritage Society and the Scribe of the Ministerial Conference in Berry Street, sponsor of an annual essay by a Unitarian Universalist minister that was founded by William Ellery Channing in 1820.

He holds a Master of Divinity Degree from New York Theological Seminary (2005) and an M.S. in Education from the University of Wisconsin (1975).  He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard College in 1972.  Paul is married to Deedee Agee; they are proud parents of David, 31 – an artist living in Chicago – and Sean, 28 – a musician living in Allston.
