There is an old “preaching illustration” about a Lighthouse Preservation Society. With all that is going on in the world and our own lives these days, may the story remind us of how we might rekindle our own light and the light of others to restore ourselves and reach out beyond our own circles. BIO Rev. Haresch is a birthright UU. She had served congregations in the Northeast and Southeast until her spouse joined the U.S. State Department, bringing their family to the Philippines, Colombia, and Canada. In the Philippines, she enjoyed being an active ministerial volunteer with a UU congregation in metro Manila and the national denomination. In Canada, she was the Developmental Minister for the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa. Rev. Pat and her family have settled again in Metro DC.
