Fred Shirley's spiritual journey is captivating. For a young man, Christianity provided much-needed answers following a very difficult childhood. His new-found faith led him to the Baptist and Congregational churches, where he and his wife raised their family. Discovering the UU church, Fred found the freedom to face and explore the religious questions that had appeared in the margins over the years.
When he joined the UU church, Fred retained his membership and participation in the Congregational church, which continues to nurture his Christian faith. Interestingly, it's the UU church that feeds his spirituality. As Fred explains, "I feel the Unitarian Universalist church has been more consistently spiritual than any other church I've ever been in."
Listen to Fred's remarkable and inspiring journey.
