Rev. Bruce Bode will lead the service. Music by Cally Lindenmier, mezzo; and Nick Abbott, piano. Click here for links and information about attending in-person or via Livestream.

Rev. Bode’s sermon, “For Memory Will Keep What It Has Heard,” will explore the mystery of memory and the ties of love that bind us together. Why do we remember what we remember? And what is it that is passed on from one life to another? Bruce will offer the evocative poetry of Margaret Jane Cole and Li-Young Lee.

Bruce A. Bode, a native of Lynden, WA, is Minister Emeritus of the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (QUUF) in Port Townsend, from which he retired in 2018 after serving the congregation as Senior Minister for 14 years (2004-2018).

Before coming to Port Townsend, Rev. Bode was the Interim Minister of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston, Texas (2002-2004) and the Hope Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma (2001-2002). Prior to that, he served for twenty-two years (1978-2001) as an Associate Minister at the Fountain Street Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a large, independent, religiously liberal congregation.
