Every month we honor one of our many great volunteers.
Maggie Hayes grew up in a Methodist family in Kansas, but early in her college years she came to the realization that she was no longer a believer. For most of her adult life, the New York Times (especially the crossword puzzle) was her preferred way to spend Sunday morning. Yes, there was a foray into Unitarian-Universalism at Cedar Lane more than 25 years ago, but she didn’t develop much of a connection with that church. After retiring from the State Department, and at the end of a long marriage, space opened up for a small “s” spirituality, and Maggie began to see a place for a church community in her life. So, encouraged by long-time friends Doneby Smith and David Miley, she arrived at our doorstep.
