A friend invited me to the church in the 1990’s for a forum that featured the Democratic and Republican candidates for Congress at the time. I remember being more impressed with the questions from church members than I was with either candidate. I was a young adult. I remember thinking, “This church has some of the youngest elders!” I met so many people who were open-minded, receptive of new ideas and committed to learning from everyone they might meet. I suppose I am one of those young elders now. At this point TVUUC has been my spiritual home for many decades. I am grateful for the fact that it has helped me to grow wiser while staying young.
