As we emerge from behind the walls of our COVID confinement and begin to re-enter the world around us, what wisdom can we take from men and women who lived as prisoners of conscience behind walls of stone or steel? How might their stories help us as individuals and as communities of faith to re-engage the world with renewed resolve to put our religious convictions into action? We will look at the examples of individuals from long ago and our own day that inspire us to bolder living “beyond the walls.”

The Rev. Thomas Traylor is a priest in the Episcopal Church. He currently serves as a priest associate at Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church in San Francisco. For much of his career he served as a hospice chaplain. Perhaps his greatest claim to fame is to be the lucky longtime partner of UUCM pianist Milton Wong. Tom has had the pleasure of knowing the good people of UUCM for more than twenty years and is always glad to be “up on the hill” with them (if only virtually this year!).
